Mystery deepens in Malaysia as wife of Sarawak’s Taib Mahmud denies taking him from hospital against doctor’s advice

Posts of a police report believed to have been filed by Taib’s doctor were widely shared on X (formerly Twitter), Facebook and Reddit, alleging that his wife, Raghad Kurdi Taib, had removed the 87-year-old from the Normah Medical Specialist Centre in Kuching despite being advised against it on Saturday night.
