The High Court in Kuala Lumpur today allowed an application by former Federal Territories minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor to obtain his passport temporarily in order to visit his children in Australia as well as to attend business meetings in Indonesia.
Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali allowed Tengku Adnan’s application to have his passport returned after hearing submissions from Tengku Adnan’s lawyer, Tan Hock Chuan, and Deputy Public Prosecutor Julia Ibrahim.
The judge ordered the passport to be released today and to be returned to the court by Feb 28.
“My client wants to visit his two children, aged 18 and 13, who are in Australia, especially the youngest daughter who just started school on Jan 30,” Tan said.
He also submitted that his client had to attend several business meetings in his capacity as a board member or a shareholder, which were scheduled in Indonesia.
Julia said she had no objection to the application by Tengku Adnan.
