KUALA LUMPUR: The wives of an 83-year-old restaurant owner, who died of liver failure on Saturday, have agreed to settle the dispute over the burial rites out of court.
High Court judge Justice Azmel Maamor recorded the consent judgment with conditions attached yesterday.
Three days ago, Chean Hong Leow's Malaysian wife, Woo Yoke Chean, had obtained an interim injunction to stop his China-born wife, Tan Han Tow, from conducting the last rites and burial.
Woo named Tan, her stepson Thim Kho and Sentosa Medical Centre Sdn Bhd as defendants.
She also wanted the three defendants to stop conducting and concluding the funeral arrangements without her consent.
On Monday, the two families got into a heated argument at Tan's residence in Jalan Ipoh and police had to be called in to calm them down.
