SHAH ALAM (Bernama): The High Court here today set July 27 to hear the suit filed by the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) against former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s daughter, Nooryana Najwa, over RM10.3 million in unpaid income tax for the year 2011 to 2017.

Judge Datuk Che Mohd Ruzima Ghazali fixed the date during the case management on Tuesday (June 30).

The court set July 27 at 10am to hear the case, he said, and also ordered the defendant to file the written submission before the date.

The IRB filed the suit on July 24 last year, claiming that Nooryana Najwa, 32, failed to submit the Individual Income Tax Return Forms to the IRB, under Section 77 of the Income Tax Act 1967 for the years of assessment from 2011 to 2017.

It contended that the defendant had not paid the amount of income tax owed worth a total of RM10,335,292.36.

The plaintiff is seeking from the defendant a sum of RM10,335,292.36, plus, interest at a rate of 5% per annum from the date of judgment, costs and other relief deemed fit by the court. – Bernama
