KUALA LUMPUR: The mention of a divorce application filed by Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar against her husband Raja Ahmad Shahir Iskandar Raja Salim has been fixed for March 11.
Lower Syariah Court judge Ab Malek Awang set the date in chambers after meeting counsel Normawaddah Ramli, who acted for Nurul Izzah and Raja Ahmad Shahir Iskandar yesterday.
Raja Ahmad Shahir arrived in the courtroom together with his counsel Muhamad Nakhaie Ishak.
Normawaddah later told reporters that both sides were in the midst of discussing the issue with hopes of resolving the matter amicably.
“The mutual divorce process under Section 47 of the Islamic Family Law (Federal Territories) Act 1984 is still ongoing,” she said.
The divorce case, number 14001- 055-0023-2014, was mentioned for the first time before the same judge on Jan 21.
When reporters went to the Syariah Court’s registration counter on Jan 22, a staff confirmed that the eldest daughter of Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had filed the divorce application but declined to comment further on the issue.
Nurul Izzah who is also a PKR vice-president, 34, and Raja Ahmad Shahir Iskandar, 35, were married on May 9, 2003. They have two children – a seven-year-old girl and a four-year-old boy.
