Bid to strike out RM60 million suit failed.
The High Court in Kuala Lumpur today has today dismissed Rosmah Mansor’s application to strike out an RM60 million suit filed by a Lebanese jewellery firm for the non-payment of 44 pieces of jewellery it had sent to her.
Judicial Commissioner Wong Chee Lin ordered the Attorney-General’s Chambers to file an affidavit within two weeks from today to determine whether the 44 items are with the police.
The jewellery was seized by police during raids on properties linked to Rosmah’s husband, the former prime minister Najib Razak.
Once this has been ascertained, the court said Rosmah can file a fresh application to strike out the suit.
Wong fixed March 4 and 5 for the hearing of the suit.
The Beirut-based firm filed the suit against Rosmah last June due to the uncertainty of the status of the jewellery shipment it had sent to her. – Malaysiakini
