‘Turncoat fugitive’ RPK writing ‘crap’, says Rafidah

PETALING JAYA: Former minister Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz today tore into blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin (RPK), calling him a "turncoat fugitive skunk". She asked how much he was being paid to write "crap".

She said he was writing lies in an attempt to divert attention from real problems facing the country.

"Stop these diversions from the real issues facing the nation. This British-based turncoat fugitive skunk is indeed a JOKE," she said in a Facebook post today.

"I wonder how much dedak (chicken feed) he was paid (in British Pounds?) to write the crap?" she said about the Manchester-based blogger.

Raja Petra had several allegations against the former international trade and industry minister. In one article, he took a dig at Rafidah's comment on the seized luxury yacht, teh Equanimity.

"On 5th March 2018, Rafidah Aziz said she managed to locate or track down the luxury yacht Equanimity in waters off Phuket, Thailand last year. She personally took photographs of the yacht plus managed to pinpoint the exact location of the Equanimity using the vessel's automatic identification system," Raja Petra wrote in his blog.

"The way Rafidah talks it is as if she was purposely hunting for that yacht. More than 99% of Malaysians would not have recognised the Equanimity if it had rammed them in their behinds. Rafidah, however, was as sharp as a CIA agent on a military precision secret mission."
