Following Barisan National's defeat in the recent election, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor said she hopes that their troubles will soon be over

She also said that she bears no grudges towards former allies who turned on her and former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak after the election.

"It's normal in politics. When you're up, everybody adores us, but when you have problems, it is expected. It is just part and parcel of life," she said in a recent interview with Malay Mail on Saturday, 19 May.

"I don't mind. It's OK. Everybody has got their right about what they want to say."

Despite the series of police investigations in their home in Jalan Laggak Duta, Rosmah said that she remained calm throughout

She emphasised during the interview that her focus now was only to protect her family and herself.

"We are taking it quite well. I think we're quite relaxed, being a family of politicians. This is just one of those trials and tribulations, hazards of being in politics," she reportedly said.

In the aforementioned raids, police carted away a massive haul of valuables including designer handbags, cash, and jewelry reported to be linked to the 1MDB scandal.

"I can take all those pre-dawn raids, I understand. Otherwise, we have to be treated like normal human beings. The right to dignity," she added.

"It's another life, but I'm not complaining. I'm not asking for this kind of life, but it's a much more relaxed life when I can do my thing. When I feel like sleeping, I can sleep; when I feel like waking up, I can wake up."

"But I would like this to be over as soon as possible, because we want to move on with our lives," she said.

Yesterday, Najib denied that he sought witness protection for him and his family during the 1MDB investigations:
