India confirms extradition request issued for Zakir Naik

India said that it had requested that Malaysia extradite preacher Zakir Naik in January this year to face money laundering, terrorism and incitement charges in his home country.

This was confirmed after ruling coalition officials issued contradicting claims on whether or not India had officially sought Malaysia's help.

Lawyer Mohamed Haniff Khatri Abdulla said it was unfair to accuse the Malaysian government of failing to take action against Zakir in view of Interpol's decision to deny India's request that the preacher be placed on the red notice.

Human Resource Minister M Kulasegaran said Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad was right to state that Zakir could remain in Malaysia as long as he did not do anything wrong or cause unrest.

Rosmah’s jewels may attract taxman

The 44 pieces of jewellery received by former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak's wife Rosmah Mansor from a Lebanese firm may be subjected to further seizure if it was not declared to the Customs Department.

Damansara MP Tony Pua refused to allow Najib to withdraw his suit against the DAP lawmaker for making allegedly defamatory comments in relations to 1MDB.

The MACC has managed to secure an extension on a remand for Rosmah's aide, who is currently assisting investigations in connection with a solar project for rural schools in Sarawak.
