KUALA LUMPUR: Nurul Izzah Anwar’s husband Raja Ahmad Shahrir Iskandar Raja Salim has been given until April 17 by a Lower Syariah Court here to finalise the nomination of a “reconciliation committee”, set up in a bid to save their marriage.
Syariah judge Ab Malek Awang fixed the date in chambers after meeting counsel Normawaddah Ramli, who acted for Nurul Izzah, and Zulkifli Che Yong, who represented Raja Ahmad Shahrir.
Raja Ahmad Shahrir, 35, needed to confirm the nomination for his representative in the next proceedings.
At yesterday’s proceedings, Nurul Izzah arrived with her uncle Rosli Ibrahim.
It was then confirmed that the 34-year-old Lembah Pantai MP had appointed her uncle to be a committee member.
The committee is set up when either one of the parties concerned does not want the divorce or when the Syariah Court views that a reconciliation could take place.
The court would then appoint a reconciliation committee and refer the case to the panel.
The committee comprises a religious department officer and two others – one to act on behalf of the husband and another for the wife.
Priority will be given to close relatives of both parties.
Judge Ab Malek set June 12 for the committee to submit a report on the outcome of their discussions.
Nurul Izzah and Raja Ahmad Shahrir were married on May 9, 2003. They have a seven-year-old daughter and a four-year-old son.
