News regarding former PM and first lady, Najib Razak and Rosmah Mansor, has been circulating the internet ever since the verdict on their jail terms and fines.
Recently, JUICE reported on Rosmah’s appeal to reclaim her possessions as well as her husband’s latest trip to the hospital which he used as part of his reasoning to file for a royal pardon from his 12 year sentence.
At the time of writing, it has been revealed why Najib was hospitalised and it is due to recurring stomach issues, according to one of his daughters.
Nooryana Najwa Najib recently made headlines for lamenting on her father’s daily Starbuck’s caramel macchiato fix which he sadly can’t indulge in anymore since he’s in jail (to which, netizens collectively replied “boo hoo”).
The daughter disclosed Najib’s tendency for stomach ulcers that can flare up under stress or a gastritis episode.
She said in a statement, “The last time his ulcers bled (last year), he was unaware of his condition until he felt very faint due to internal bleeding and was admitted quietly to the hospital for a week.
“I know Daddy is not the kind (of person) who would complain if he feels unwell.
“He doesn’t like to inconvenience anyone, even if (doing so) risks his own well-being.
“By the time he shows symptoms, it is usually too late.
“We caught both previous episodes too late, and thus, serious medical intervention was required, including blood transfusions.”
Due to that, she hopes that her father will get consistent screening and treatment whenever it is needed.
She concluded by pleading, “Please take care of our daddy and Bossku. He means the world to us.”
The former prime minister has been sentenced to 12 years in prison and fined RM210 million.
