KUALA LUMPUR - It is more important that the people who accused her of purchasing a 22-carat pink diamond apologise to the people than to apologise to her, says Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
The wife of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said this after a deputy minister made a statement in the Dewan Rakyat clarifying that there was no purchase of the pink diamond popularly linked to her.
Rosmah said the issue was trumped up by certain parties to "use it for the election".
"If people come to apologise to me, I will forgive them.
Rosmah earlier claimed trial at the Sessions Court to a third charge of graft related to the solar hybrid project for rural schools in Sarawak.
"They believe the slander spread about me, and this is only (one example of slander). But I have to be patient and accept it.
"I understand that my husband is a leader of the country. What he goes through, I go through as well because I am his wife," she added.
