Daim’s wife obtained a temporary passport

KUALA LUMPUR: The Sessions Court here today granted the application of the wife of former Finance Minister Tun Daim Zainuddin Toh Puan Na’imah Abdul Khalid to obtain her international passport temporarily to travel to Basel, Switzerland, and Singapore.

Judge Azura Alwi allowed the application after lawyer M. Pravalen, representing Na’imah, informed him that his client applied to obtain a passport from today until June 30, and it was not objected to by the prosecution.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Datuk Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin confirmed the matter.

Based on the affidavit in support of the application obtained by the media, Na’imah said she had to go to Basel, Switzerland, to attend the Art Basel art exhibition from June 10 to 16 and also needed to be in Singapore to meet with stakeholders in her company related to work.

“The reason for choosing this period is simply because of the appointment with various individuals that I will meet during my journey,” he said in the affidavit.

Na’imah said she has appeared on all the dates set by the court and has not shown any sign of running away or not appearing in court for the case she is facing. She will hand over her passport to the court immediately after returning to Malaysia on or before June 30, 2024.

On Jan 23, Na’imah, 66, was charged in the Sessions Court here with failing to comply with a notice to declare her assets, including Menara Ilham, as well as several other assets around Kuala Lumpur and Penang.
