In her notice of motion, Rosmah said on Aug 26, she had come across an article by Raja Petra Kamaruddin titled “Rosmah Mansor Will Be Pronounced Guilty On 1st September 2022”.

She said she was shocked to have read the article which stated that the judgment against her was ready and that it was not prepared by the judge himself but rather prepared on his behalf.
