KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court has set Nov 27 to hear an application by former Felda chairman Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad (pic), who is facing charges of criminal breach of trust and corruption involving more than RM3mil, for the temporary return of his passport.

His lawyer, Julie Faralisa Abd Jais, said this after the case management held before High Court deputy registrar Mahyudin Mohmad Som, which was also attended by Deputy Public Prosecutor Muhammad Asraf Mohamed Tahir.

She said Mohd Isa applied for the return of the passport to enable him to travel abroad on Dec 10 to perform the umrah and visit his daughter in the United Kingdom.

Mohd Isa, 70, surrendered his passport to the court after he was charged with one count of criminal breach of trust and nine counts of receiving bribes amounting to more than RM3mil in connection with a hotel purchase in Kuching by Felda Investment Corporation Sdn Bhd.

The offences were allegedly committed at Menara Felda, Persiaran KLCC between April 29,2014, and Dec 11,2015. — Bernama
