KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here today dismissed an application by former federal territories minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor to set aside the order for him to surrender his passport to the court by increasing the bail amount.
Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali, in dismissing the application, upheld the decision of the Sessions Court to impose bail of RM500,000 on Tengku Adnan, 69, and for him to surrender his passport to the court pending the disposal of his case.
Nazlan said the Putrajaya MP, who was accompanied by his four children in court today, could apply for the temporary return of his passport if he had to travel overseas.
“The bail of RM500,000 and the additional condition to surrender his passport to the court is upheld,” he said when the case came up for first mention at the court since its transfer from the Sessions Court.
When submitting the application earlier, lawyer Tan Hock Chuan, representing Tengku Adnan, said his client had to travel often to Australia to visit his daughters, aged 13 and 18, who were studying there. He said Tengku Adnan also had to travel to Indonesia for business.
Tan said Tengku Adnan suggested that his bail amount be increased from RM500,000 to RM1 million, adding that he was prepared to report himself to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office every month if need be.
“My client and his wife often visit their children in Australia. My client is also no longer working with the government and he has to handle his business overseas. He is not a flight risk and has given his cooperation to MACC,” he added.

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 12 — The Sessions Court here today discharged, but not amounting to an acquittal former Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor on a charge with accepting RM2 million bribe from a businessman two years ago.
Judge Azman Ahmad made the ruling after allowing an application by the prosecution, conducted by deputy public prosecutor Julia Ibrahim, to discharge without acquitting Tengku Adnan, 68, of the charge, which was the second charge made against him when he was first charged in court last Nov 15.
The charge was made under Section 165 of the Penal Code, which provides and imprisonment for up to two years, or with fine, or both, if found guilty.
“We find the facts in the first and second charge not related and therefore inapproriate to tried together.
“However, we will refile the second charge and will read as a new separate charge,” she said.
Tengku Adnan’s lawyer, Datuk Tan Hock Chuan, did not object to the prosecution’s application, but requested the bail of RM1 million which had been imposed earlier on his client for the two charges to be reduced to RM500,000 with one surety.
Tan said this would enable Tengku Adnan, who is Umno Treasurer, to post the bail on the new charge to be made against him.
Azman allowed Tan’s request, but maintained the other condition which required Tengku Adnan to surrender his diplomatic and international passports to the court.
About half an hour later, when the court resumed proceedings, a new charge involving the same transaction, which was for allegedly accepting RM2 million bribe from a businessman two years ago, was read out to Tengku Adnan, who the pleaded not guilty to the charge.
He was charged as a public servant in his capacity as the Federal Territories Minister to have received valuables without consideration, amounting RM2 million from one Chai Kin Kong, through a Hong Leong Islamic Bank cheque belonging to Aset Kayamas Sdn Bhd, which was deposited into a CIMB account belonging to Tadmansori Holding Sdn Bhd, which he (Tengku Adnan) had interest in and which he knew had connection with his official function.
Tengku Adnan was charged with committing the offence at CIMB Bank Berhad, Pusat Bandar Damansara branch, Level 1, Lot A4, Block A, Pusat Bandar Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, on June 14 , 2016.
The court allowed Tengku Adnan bail of RM500,000 with one surety and fixed Jan 7 next year for mention.
Earlier, the court allowed Tengku Adnan’s application for the return of his international passport today to enable him to travel to Melbourne, Australia, for treatment at a hospital there, and to be returned on Jan 7 next year.
Tan also informed the court that the defence had applied to transfer the case to the High Court under section 417 of the criminal procedure Code and the hearing had been fixed on Dec 14.
