KUALA LUMPUR: The G25 group of eminent Malays is planning to set up a consultative council to examine Syariah laws that they feel are in conflict with the Federal Constitution.

Its spokesperson Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin said the consultative council would look at the Syariah laws, and recommend repeal or amendment where there had been trespasses of the Constitution and those that intrude into people’s private spheres.
