Sultan of Brunei news

The adopted daughter of the Sultan of Brunei has said she was duped into handing over two diamond rings to a former bodyguard, a court has heard, reports BBC

Afifa Abdullah said she lent the rings, belonging to the Sultan's ex-wife Mariam Aziz, to bodyguard Fatimah Lim in London to secure a property deal.

Ms Lim denies three counts of thefts in relation to jewellery items worth 12m. Her lawyer said Mrs Aziz had actually asked her daughter to give Ms Lim the rings to pay off 3m gambling debts.

Isleworth Crown Court heard Ms Lim first worked as Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah's badminton coach before becoming a bodyguard to Mrs Aziz when the couple split in 2003.
