Did Raja Petra Study MACBETH?

The owner of Malaysia Today has made the most startling claims that will surely test the Malaysian justice system that is reeling under many allegations of fixed judges and interference by the Executive, especially under the previous PM.

You can read the malaysiakini article here:
"Raja Petra: 'Rosmah at murder scene' "

My initial reaction is that Shakespeare wrote a most tragic play Macbeth in which the wife urges her husband Macbeth to kill the king Duncan so that her husband could rule. If not for the wife's prompting, Macbeth could have chickened out.

Sometimes a woman can be really domineering and can "force" a man to do evil deeds.
In the play, Lady Macbeth becomes delusional and wanders about the castle after the murder mumbling, "All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand."
She also develops a fetish of constantly washing her hands with: "Out damned spot......"

Sorry that is all I can remember of my Literature paper of 1964. But the couple do meet a tragic end.

The information stated in RPK's SD are from hearsay source. I am not disputing the contents' reliability but I wish to state here that mere hearsay information cannot convict a person guilty.

Unless RPK has evidence to support his SD, i think we should not be too quick to make up our mind on the issue.

who has made up anybody's mind?

This is a serious case. I don't think RPK would make a SD base on heresay. How could Rosmah sleep at night if she is really at the scene? God, this is one evil woman who is going to ruin her husband's political career.

Whether fact or fiction only time will tell
All those guilty will be destined for hell
It's only a question of when all will hear the bell
Of round one being sounded within the small prison cell
