ROSMAH Mansor will know soon whether she will have to face trial over unpaid jewellery worth RM60 million demanded by a Lebanese jeweller, who counts the former self-styled first lady as one of his best customers.

The Kuala Lumpur High Court will soon decide on Rosmah’s application to strike off the suit filed by Samer Halimeh after a consignment of 44 pieces of jewellery that were sent to her in February were seized in government raids in May. The items have not been paid for.
