KUALA LUMPUR: The Syariah High Court here heard on Tuesday that Datuk Seri Mahmud Abu Bekir, a Group Deputy Chairman of Cahaya Mata Sarawak (CMS), has 111 accounts totalling more than RM700mil.
His ex-wife Shahnaz A. Majid, 48, testified that the accounts were located in several banks overseas, which includes United States of America, Europe and the Carribean.
Shahnaz, who is the sister of jazz singer Datuk Sheila Majid, is claiming 50% of all assets owned by Mahmud Abu Bekir such as luxury cars, houses in various locations, land in Sarawak and shares.
She said Mahmud Abu Bekir, 49, the son of Sarawak chief minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, had the capability to also pay her RM100mil in gifts to enable her to start her life afresh.
The couple were married on Jan 9, 1992 and divorced on May 11 last year.
