KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) is applying for an extradition order of cosmetics entrepreneur Nur Sajat from the authorities in Thailand.
Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Comm Datuk Seri Abd Jalil Hassan said the (extradition application) also involved various other agencies in Malaysia, including the Attorney General's Chambers (AGC).
The whole (application) process would take time as it involves multiple agencies here, he said.
"We cannot determine exactly when Nur Sajat can be brought home. When we apply (for extradition order), the Thai authorities would also need to approve it,” he said when contacted on Monday (Sept 20).
Earlier on Monday, in a statement, Comm Abd Jalil said Nur Sajat, 36, was detained by Thai immigration on Sept 8 for being in possession of an invalid passport.
The next day, she was charged in a Thai court and fined for the offence, he said.
"Efforts are being taken to bring the individual home.
"Nur Sajat is sought by the Malaysian authorities under Section 186 of the Penal Code for obstructing a public servant from carrying out his duties and Section 353 of the same code with using criminal force to deter a public servant from discharging his duty,” he said.
She is sought by the authorities after the Shah Alam Syariah High Court issued an arrest warrant against her on Feb 23 for failing to attend proceedings over a charge of dressing as a woman.
Nur Sajat, whose birth name is Muhammad Sajjad Kamarul Zaman, is also required by the police to attend proceedings at Ampang Jaya Court over a fraud case involving MyKad details.- Bernama
