KUALA LUMPUR: The mother of a former minister, the late Tan Sri Jamaluddin Mohd Jarjis, has filed a suit against her two grandchildren over their failure to include three company shares, worth RM1.3 billion, in the list of her son’s estate.

Aminah Abdullah, 85, filed the suit at the High Court last Jan 3 through the legal firm of Messrs. Wan Marican, Hamzah & Shaik and named Nur Anis Jamaluddin, 34, and Ikwan Hafiz Jamaluddin, 32, as the first and second defendant, respectively.

The High Court has set April 2 for further case management of the matter before judge Datuk Mohd Firuz Jaffril.

Lawyer Aqilah Pawancheek, representing Aminah, told this to reporters today after the case management before High Court deputy registrar Norliza Hussin.

In the statement of claim, Aminah stated that the two defendants, as joint administrators of Jamaluddin’s estate, had failed to include the three company shares as inheritance in the list of assets in the letter of administration when Jamaluddin died on April 4, 2015 and also failed to enter the shares as a liability since July 6, 2017.

Aminah also claimed that the two defendants failed to enter the shares of the three companies – Rantai Wawasan Sdn Bhd, Alpine Motion Sdn Bhd and Ivory Insight Wawasan Sdn Bhd – as part of the deceased’s estate with intention to deny her the rights and interest as a beneficiary.

She claimed that her two grandchildren also failed to state the estimate value of the shares, which was worth RM1,384,312,154 two and half years after Jamaluddin died.

Aminah claimed Nur Anis and Ikwan Hafiz also failed to include an apartment, worth RM10 million, in the United States, in the list of Jamaluddin’s assets that was enclosed with the letter of administration.

She also claimed that Ikwan Hafiz failed to inform her that the Syariah High Court had issued to her the faraid certificate on Jamaluddin’s estate on Oct 6, 2016.

Aminah is seeking a court order for her name to included as joint administrators of Jamaluddin’s estate being that she is the biological mother of the deceased and for the two defendants to pay dividends, bonus and profit from the shares in the three companies. — Bernama
