KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 (Bernama) -- The Sessions Court here today granted the application by former Finance Minister Tun Daim Zainuddin Toh Puan Na’imah Abdul Khalid for the temporary release of her passport to travel to London and Venice.

Judge Azrul Darus allowed the application after the prosecution did not object to the application made by Na’imah’s lawyer M.Puravalen for her passports to be temporarily released from this Sunday until July 25.

Deputy public prosecutor Mohamad Fadhly Mohd Zamry confirmed the matter.

However, the court also ordered Na’imah to surrender her passport back to the court after returning to Malaysia on or before July 27.

According to the affidavit in support of the application obtained by the media, Na’imah said she needs to go to London to see her lawyer Dave Vasoodaven from Gulbenkian Andonian Solicitors and has to be in Venice for the international art exhibition, La Biennale in Venezia from July 16 to 20.

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

The court, however, granted her bail at RM250,000 with one surety and ordered her to surrender her passport.
