KUALA LUMPUR — Aug. 29, 2018: The mother of the late federal minister Tan Sri Jamaluddin Jarjis has filed an application at the syariah high court here to obtain the faraid certificate on her son’s estate, estimated to be worth more than RM2 billion.
Aminah Abdullah, 84, filed the application last March 2 to determine the division of the estate left by the former Rompin Member of Parliament, who died in a helicopter crash in 2015, amongst those who have rights to it.
The estate include 20 properties in Malaysia, the United States and Mecca, as well as his companies, lawyer Kamar Ainiah Kamaruzaman told reporters after the case came up for management before High Court registrar Siti Zulaiha Mohamad Mansor in chambers today.
The application by Aminah had been made known to Jamaluddin’s widow, Puan Sri Dr. Kalsom Ismail, and four children.
Kamar Ainiah said the court also allowed the applications by Kalsom and the children to be intervenors in Aminah’s application.
Aminah had no objection if there are other heirs who want to be intervenors, said Kamar Ainiah, adding that the court fixed September 13 for further case management.
Aminah was present at today’s proceeding, accompanied by Jamaludin’s younger brother, Mohamad Najeb Ali.
Jamaluddin was killed on April 4, 2015, after the helicopter he was crashed at Kampung Sungai Pening, Semenyih, while travelling back from Pekan to KL. — Bernama
