KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 21, 2015:
A former legal officer investigating 1Malaysia Development Bhd will most likely be deported, The Star Online reports.
Jessica Gurmeet Kaur, a Singaporean, the portal reported, had her permanent resident status revoked and officers, possibly from the Immigration Department, were looking to serve the deportation order.
Jessica was arrested on Aug 1 along with former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission adviser Tan Sri Rashpal Singh in connection with leaks in the probe into the state investment arm.
They were later released on bail after police recorded their statements.
The Star Online learnt that Jessica’s bail was also revoked last week.
It was also learnt, the portal reported, that several officers had been waiting outside Jessica’s condominium in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, on Thursday.
“She was, however, not at home,” The Star Online wrote.
Meanwhile, The Malaysian Insider (TMI) quoted sources as saying that her children’s residency permits were also cancelled.
A lawyer, who declined to be named by TMI, meanwhile confirmed that Jessica’s service with the A-G was terminated last week but had no knowledge of the deportation order.
“I am surprised by the turn of events and expected the Malaysian authorities to keep her here as she has a lot of confidential information,” the portal quoted the lawyer as saying.
According to TMI, the lawyer also said Jessica would not be subject to Malaysian law such as the Official Secrets Act once out of the country.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar was previously reported to have said the police who would not escort Jessica to the border.
