The Star/ANN | Tuesday, Jul 1, 2014

According to the Facebook Profile of his wife, Mohammed Rizalman Bin Ismail (pic), 38, has three children, two of which are enrolled in primary schools while the other is a toddler.

PUTRAJAYA - The Malaysian government has no qualms over sending to New Zealand a diplomatic aide facing charges of burglary and assault with the intent to commit rape.

"If that is necessary and there is request from New Zealand, and they think the investigation is not done properly," Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said at a press conference here Tuesday.

Anifah said the accused, Muhammad Rizalman Ismail, was a 38-year-old defence staff assistant with the rank of Second Warrant Officer.

A Wellington High Court judge on Tuesday lifted the suppression order obtained by the aide.
