Rafizi had been scheduled to reveal further allegations regarding the use of a private jet by Rosmah, wife of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Reporters were aware last night that Rosmah's aide, Datuk Rizal Mansor, planned to turn up at the press conference to rebut the allegations by Rafizi in person.
Rizal arrived around noon together with several other unidentified men and was seen shaking hands with Amanah candidate Dr Ahmad Termizi Ramli. However, when they asked to enter the building, Amanah staff stopped them from doing so. A verbal confrontation ensued between the two parties as Rafizi arrived and proceeded upstairs for the press conference. Rizal and his companions later left the premises after being repeatedly told that they could not enter on grounds that only media personnel were invited.
Members of the media waiting in the room upstairs were subsequently asked by an Amanah representative to produce their media tags to verify their identities. "We just want to make sure that there aren't those who wish to cause disturbance," Rafizi said before the start of the press conference.

Its secretary Datuk Koh Chin Han said in a statement that DAP had guaranteed that PAS would not be able to implement hudud law and that the Islamist party's leaders were liberal and progressive.
"Once being in a untouchable position of power after GE13, PAS had shed its sheep's wool and revealed its true colours by insisting on the implementation of Syariah criminal codes," he said.
He said DAP was now using the same "bleaching tactics" on Amanah despite the fact that the party's leaders had voiced their support for the implementation of hudud.
Koh pointed out that Amanah is an Islamist party and committed to reforming the secular and democratic system under the Federal Constitution.
"What makes the DAP leaders so confident that Amanah is upholding a secular and democratic system under the Federal Constitution?
"Which campaign leaflet of the party actually shows that?" he asked.
"Amanah is no different from PAS. DAP has empowered 'one' PAS, and Malaysia does not need another PAS in the future!" he said.
