KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 3 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has clarified that his daughter was not in Australia while he was attending the Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) meeting in Perth recently.
He said people should not fall for or indulge in spreading lies.
“Don’t believe and spread lies. My daughter was not even in Australia and my wife (Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor) did not buy any jewellery,” Najib said in his Twitter update.
His comments came on the heels of the publication of an article in an Australian newspaper which alleged that his daughter had spent $60,000 at a shopping centre in Perth, the venue of the CHOGM gathering.
The report also mentioned about “one first lady known to have bought $150,000 worth of WA (Western Australian) pearls”. However, it did not name the person in question.
Najib and Rosmah are currently performing the haj in Saudi Arabia.
