KUALA LUMPUR: A former university dean, who accused his wife of being a man, has been ordered by a Syariah High Court to pay RM12,000 in costs in four instalments over his four failed applications against the beauty care boutique owner.
Dr Bahrom Sanugi, 63, a former Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia dean, is to pay Sri Wani Choo Abdullah RM3,000 monthly before the 7th of each month following the ruling made by Syarie judge Amran Md Zain yesterday.
Dr Bahrom’s four applications, among others, sought to compel Sri Wani to undergo a DNA test to verify her gender.
On Aug 30, 2012, Syariah High Court judge Abdul Walid Abu Hassan ruled then the court had no jurisdiction to conduct the case as Dr Bahrom had failed to reply to an affidavit in relation to his rented house in Taman Dato’ Senu here.
The judge said the respondent had also failed to reply to an affidavit on the issue although he had been given sufficient time to file it and this had wasted the court’s time
Dr Bahrom had also applied to validate a solemnisation and temporary separation (faraq nikah) from his wife.
The other applications were for an injunction to prevent Sri Wani from making press statements and a committal order to jail her.
Judge Amran Md Zain instructed Dr Bahrom to pay the costs in instalments after meeting the parties in chambers yesterday.
Syarie counsel Datuk Amli Embong, who acted for Sri Wani, told reporters: “Today, Dr Bahrom paid RM3,000 in cash as the first instalment to Sri Wani.”
