PETALING JAYA - Sacked Singa­porean legal officer Jessica Gurmeet Kaur will not be deported, according to the Immigration Department.

Department deputy director-general Datuk Sakib Kusmi said Immigration would not deport Jessica although her permanent re­sidency (PR) had been revoked.

"There is no need to deport her. She can apply for a special or social visit pass since she is married to a Malaysian," he said yesterday.

Asked if Jessica was still in Malaysia, Sakib declined to comment.

Jessica has been living in Malaysia for over 20 years before a sudden turn of events, which started with investigations by the authorities on her and former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission adviser Tan Sri Rashpal Singh over a purported leak in relation to a charge sheet.

Jessica was head of administration and finance at the Attorney-General's Chambers and was also attached to the Special Taskforce investigating various financial cases.

The taskforce has since been disbanded.

Jessica and Rashpal were released on police bail after their statements were recorded.

Jessica's bail was reported to have been revoked last week.
