NOR AZURA ABDUL JALIL, Rahmat Khairulrijal

KUALA LUMPUR: The mother of the late Tan Sri Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis filed an application to obtain the faraid certificate on her son's estate, estimated to be worth at some RM2 billion, at the Syariah High Court, here, today.

Jamaluddin who was former Rompin MP, died three years ago in a helicopter crash.

Aminah Abdullah, 84, represented by lawyer Kamar Ainiah Kamaruzaman made the application on March 2 and the case came up for management today.

When met after the proceeding, Kamar Ainiah said the application was made to determine the division of Jamaluddin's estate amongst those that have rights to it.

She said the application made by Aminah was made known to Jamaluddin's widow Puan Sri Dr Kalsom Ismail and his four children aged between 23 and 33.


Aminah Abdullah, 84, represented by lawyer Kamar Ainiah Kamaruzaman made the application on March 2 and the case came up for management today.

His estate includes more than 20 properties in Malaysia, the United States of America and Mecca as well as a company he owned.

"His widow applied to intervene (in this application) and on behalf of the mother as the applicant, she (Aminah) has no objections if other heirs wished to intervene.

"Following that, the Syariah High Court registrar Siti Zulaiha Mohamad Mansor set Sept 13 for case management," Kamar Ainiah said.

Aminah who was in a wheel chair was accompanied by Jamaluddin's brother Mohamad Najeb Ali.

She was divorced from Jamaluddin's father in 1954.

Jamaluddin was killed on April 4, 2015 after the helicopter he was travelling in crashed at Kampung Sungai Pening, Semenyih, Selangor.

In the incident, the helicopter ferrying six was said to have exploded mid-air before crashing in a rubber estate. © New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
