Ex wife of Sultan of Brunei says her bodyguard stole 12million British Pound in jewel

The former wife of the Sultan of Brunei has accused her ex-bodyguard of stealing and selling rare diamonds worth £12million, replacing them with worthless replicas.

Mariam Aziz, 55, claims her bodyguard, Fatimah Kumin Lim, 34, ‘appropriated’ a diamond bracelet worth £3.5million, and two diamond rings worth £8.7million, in 2008 and 2009, and used them to pay off her gambling debts.

Mrs Aziz’s lawyer Max Mallin, told the High Court Miss Lim had ‘confessed’ to ‘dishonestly’ taking the gems while they were being kept at her employer’s £1.7million home in Kensington, when being questioned by police in Brunei.
