Daim’s wife received her charges on Jan 23. The 66-year-old also pleaded not guilty.

The assets she is accused of failing to declare are Ilham Tower and two companies – Ilham Tower and Ilham Baru – and two Mercedes Benz vehicles.
Also included in the list: A house in Persiaran Bukit Tunku, four lots of land in Bukit Tunku, and one lot of land each in Taman Tun Dr Ismail and Penang. 

The multi-million-dollar Ilham Tower, a prime commercial building owned by Daim’s family, was seized by the anti-graft agency in December. 

The skyscraper, designed by famed British modernist architect Norman Foster, cost US$580 million and is located in a cluster of exclusive high-rise residential and commercial complexes around the iconic Petronas Twin Towers.

It was seized after he snubbed repeated petitions from the MACC to officially declare his assets in an investigation that began in late May.
