The High Court in Shah Alam has recently approved the former Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s application to have his passport temporarily released so that he can go for back pain treatment in Munich, Germany.
Today (15 October), the Kuala Lumpur High Court has approved the temporary release of Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor’s passport for her to travel to Singapore to visit her pregnant daughter.
According to Berita Harian, Judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan approved the application with the condition that Rosmah can only travel to Singapore and must return the passport on or before 6 December 2021.
He added that Rosmah can only leave for Singapore on 22 October and must return to Malaysia by 21 November.
“The court allowed the applicant’s application and passport to be returned on 15 October (today).” he added.
Earlier, Rosmah’s lawyer, Datuk Jagjit Singh told the court that Rosmah’s daughter, Nooryana Najwa, was 8 months pregnant and would be giving birth to her second child in Singapore. Hence, she had applied for her passport to be temporarily released.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Public Prosecutor, Mohamad Mustaffa P Kunyalam did not oppose to the application but said that the applicant must not interrupt the trial date and apply a set timeline.
Rosmah is facing corruption charges linked to the solar panel project for Sarawak schools and her trial will resume on 21 October and will continue on 8 December after her return.
Rosmah is accused of soliciting RM187.5 million and two charges of accepting a bribe of RM6.5 million from Jepak Holdings Sdn Bhd managing director, Saidi Abang Samsudin, in connection with the solar energy project through his former aide, Datuk Rizal Mansor.
In return, she will be helping Jepak Holdings to procure the Hybrid Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System Integrated Project as well as Genset/Diesel Maintenance and Operation for 369 rural schools in Sarawak, which is said to worth RM1.25 billion from the Ministry of Education through direct negotiations.
