KUALA LUMPUR: Interested third parties seeking claim to various assets, comprising hundreds of handbags of various brands, cash, watches and 27 cars, that were seized from former prime minister Najib Razak, his wife Rosmah Mansor and 16 others, can make their appearance at the High Court on Dec 14 during case management.
Deputy public prosecutor Faten Hadni Khairuddin, when contacted by Bernama, said the matter had earlier been fixed for today before judge Mohamed Zaini Mazlan, but it had to be postponed to a new date due to the extension of the conditional movement control order (CMCO).
“The prosecution was informed by the court on the new case management date yesterday,” she said, adding that the notice on the gazette for the third party appearance was issued again by the court.
The gazetting of the third party notice is to enable interested parties to appear before the court to provide reasons on why the assets should not be forfeited by the government.
In the notice of motion, the respondents named by the prosecution are Najib, Rosmah, their three children – Nor Ashman Razak, Nooryana Najwa and Riza Shahriz Abdul Aziz (Najib’s stepson) – Mohd Kyizzad Mesran; Senijauhar Sdn Bhd; Aiman Ruslan; Yayasan Rakyat 1Malaysia, Yayasan Semesta; Yayasan Mustika Kasih; Rembulan Kembara Sdn Bhd, Goh Gaik Ewe (Jho Low’s mother), Roger Ng (former Goldman Sachs officer) and wife, Lim Hwee Bin; Kee Kok Thiam; Tan Vern Tact and Geh Choh Hun.
Among the valuables were 52 branded handbags, 10 watches and cash in different denominations which were seized on May 17, 2018.
Also seized on the same day were four branded watches, 171 branded handbags and 27 pairs of shoes, while 40 luxury handbags were confiscated on June 11, 2018.
Meanwhile, 27 Nissan Urvan vehicles were seized on Aug 2, 2018.
