KUALA LUMPUR: Police will not take any action against a man for taking his six-year-old-son from his ex-wife’s house, despite a High Court order granting her custody of their two children.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar (pic) said this was because the man, Izwan Abdullah, 31, who converted to Islam, had obtained a custody order from the Syariah Court last year.
“As there are two clashing court orders on the matter, we will wait for the courts to decide,” he said during a press conference here Friday.
Khalid also said that the child was not in any danger as he was with his father.
The Syariah Court had last year awarded Izwan, previously known as N. Viran, the custody of his six-year-old son as well as nine-year-old daughter.
On Monday, the High Court awarded custody of both children to Izwan’s ex-wife S. Deepa, 31, after deciding that the law that had jurisdiction over matters pertaining to a civil marriage was the Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act.
