KUALA LUMPUR: The Syariah High Court here has adjourned to Sept 24 the trial of a divorce claim involving Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud's former daughter-in-law Datin Seri Shahnaz A. Majid against his eldest son.
Counsel for Shahnaz, Dr Mohd Rafie Shafie told media that the date was fixed to enable parties to further discuss the issue.
"If there is no settlement then the court will proceed with the hearing which is fixed on Sept 24 and 26," he said after Syariah High Court chief judge Datuk Muhamad Abdullah met both parties in chambers on Monday.
Shahnaz was represented by Dr Mohd Rafie and Akbardin Abdul Kader while Datuk Seri Mahmud Abu Bekirs lawyers were Datuk Zainul Rijal Abu Bakar and Saadiah Din.
On Feb 21, Shahnaz, the sister of jazz singer Datuk Sheila Majid, filed applications to get RM300mil in matrimonial property and RM100mil in gifts (mutaah) as a divorce settlement.
She is claiming 50% of all assets such as luxury cars, houses in various locations and land in Sarawak, and shares.
In asking for RM100mil in gifts, she said Datuk Seri Mahmud Abu Bekir had the capability to pay her to enable her to start her life afresh, adding that they were married on Jan 9, 1992 and had been separated for the past 11 years before divorcing on May 11, last year.
They have a son who was born in 1993.
