Shafee gets passport back

KUALA LUMPUR: Prominent lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah has obtained his impounded passport to enable him to go to New York to manage the administration of his son’s higher studies.

High Court judge Justice Muhammad Jamil Hussin granted the temporary release of the passport from yesterday until Dec 3 after hearing submissions from Muhammad Shafee’s lawyer Wee Yeong Kang.

There was no objection from the deputy public prosecutor S. Nithia.

According to the notice of motion filed on Oct 18, 2021, Muhammad Shafee made an application for his international passport to be handed over to him temporarily at the latest on Oct 25, for him to make preparations to fly from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport to New York on Oct 27.

Muhammad Shafee said he would return the passport to court by Dec 3.
