PUTRAJAYA: Former Sabah chief minister Tan Sri Musa Aman can get his impounded passport to travel abroad for medical treatment.
A Court of Appeal three-member panel comprising Justices Datuk Abdul Rahman Sebli, Datuk Kamardin Hashim and Datuk Zabariah Mohd Yusof allowed his appeal to restore the Sessions Court’s decision granting him access to his passport to travel abroad for medical treatment.
“The decision of the High Court is set aside and the Sessions Court’s order is restored, subject to rescheduling of the dates of Musa’s appointment with his doctor,” said Justice Abdul Rahman, who chaired the panel.
Musa, 68, was charged on Nov 5, 2018, with 35 counts of corruption involving US$63.3mil (RM263mil) in connection with timber concession contracts in Sabah. — Bernama
