The report states that Raja “Techno Anarchist” Petra is believed to be staying in the luxury London West End area of Bayswater. A typical two or three bedroom flat in this area has the average rental of GBP 1,000-,1500 per week. Realistically, for Raja Petra to have lived in this neighbourhood would have costed GBP 30,000 – 45,000 the last 30 weeks or so. That is effectively RM 165,000 – RM 250,000.The answer was given by The Unspinners yesterday as Kaleemullah. He help move RPK to London after his wife, Marina attempted suicide.
If factored for a sustenance cost to live in London at GBP 500 per week, that would calculate to GBP 15,000 or RM 82,500. Plus other costs which include travelling, communications and internet and satelite TV access, Raja Petra with his usual lifestyle would have required to burn between RM 280,000 – RM 370,000 for the past 2/3 of the year. That is roughly RM 420,000 – RM 500,000 per annum.
That is a lot of money for a fugitive family of three to live in London and still maintain the controversial blog Malaysia Today. It is widely known that Raja “Compulsive Liar” Petra is an undischarged bankrupt. Legally, he is not supposed to possess that kind of cash to withdraw and burn.
So who or which organisation is footing all these bills?
