Nur Mustika also said that that the family is questioning the evidence’s legitimacy.

“I have received too many queries about her condition. However, I can’t comment because I don’t know.”

However, she was released two days later on a RM 8,343 bail and was required to report to the Thai Immigration Headquarters for the next 14 days.

Harian Metro also reported that her passport was cancelled by the Malaysian government and that she had a United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) card.

The Malaysian police is also filing an extradition request to have the cosmetic entrepreneur back on national soil.

Nur Sajat is currently facing multiple charges in Malaysia, including dressing as a woman, criminal intimidation and preventing civil servants from performing their duties.
