KUALA LUMPUR: Former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is among three applicants seeking the High Court’s leave to stop the Prime Minister from dealing with his assets, bank accounts and shares.

The two others are former Batu Kawan Umno division vice-chief Datuk Seri Khairuddin Abu Hassan and former Langkawi Wanita Umno member Anina Saadudin.

They want the court to prevent Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak from transferring or reducing his assets – not limited to any land, cash and company shares – whether under his name, nominee or jointly, allegedly to be worth RM2.6bil.

The three applicants also want the court to compel Najib to disclose his assets within 10 days of its order.

Apart from seeking costs, they want Najib to specify all his assets in a sworn affidavit to be filed in court.

The court papers were filed at the High Court registry here at about 10.40am Tuesday.

Their lawyer Mohamed Haniff Khatri Abdulla confirmed that the application was filed for the main civil suit.

In the suit, the trio had sued Najib for alleged misfeasance in public office and breach of fiduciary duties in his position as Prime Minister, chairman of Barisan Nasional and Umno president.

They want the High Court to order the Prime Minister to pay the Government RM2.6bil in exemplary damages and another RM42mil in aggravated damages.
