KUALA LUMPUR: Bloggers like ‘Papagomo’, ‘Parpukari’ and ‘The Unspinners’ were among 40 cybertroopers paid by Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor (pix) to back her in the social media, the High Court was told yesterday.

Rosmah’s former special officer, Rizal Mansor said that the cybertroopers  received a monthly payment between RM 2,000 and RM5,000 for six years since 2012.

“There were also 12 to 15 bloggers that were paid around RM3,000 and about 30 ‘Facebookers’ of whom all were paid around RM2,000 each during the six years,” he said during cross-examination by Rosmah’s lawyer Datuk Jagjit Singh.
