Respect legal, constitutional rights of single mother after High Court grants custody of kids, says G25


PETALING JAYA: Authorities must respect the legal and constitutional rights of single mother Loh Siew Hong after the High Court ordered the return of her three children, says the G25 group of eminent Malays.

In a statement, the group said it wholeheartedly supports Loh in her plight to get her children back since they were taken from her by her ex-husband who unilaterally and unlawfully converted them to Islam.

"We urge the authorities to uphold the Federal Constitution and to respect and abide by the courts’ decision," said the group on Monday (Feb 21).

G25 said that the invalid unilateral conversion of the children must be revoked by the religious authority concerned.

"We must not forget that the ones who are suffering the most are the children, who are the silent victims in this case.

"They have already expressed their wish to live with their mother. Prolonging the separation any further will only add to their distress," added the group.

G25 also suggested that it is high time for the Attorney General, as the independent guardian of public interest, to come forward to make a public statement urging parties to obey the Federal Constitution as the supreme law of the nation, as well the decision of the Federal Court and High Court, regarding the matters at hand.

"There should be no more debate about the definition or interpretation of the law when it comes to unilateral conversion," noted G25.
