Nurul Izzah still working on solution to her divorce case


KUALA LUMPUR: Lembah Pantai MP, Nurul Izzah Anwar is still trying to resolve the divorce case she had filed against her husband Raja Ahmad Shahrir Iskandar Raja Salim at the Syariah Court here last month.

“They are still working on a way to resolve this amicably,” her lawyer Normawaddah Ramli told the press outside the court after the case was mentioned in the chambers of Syarie Judge Ab Malek Awang.

The case was fixed for second mention on March 11.

Nurul Izzah, 34, the eldest child of opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, filed a request for divorce under Section 47 of Islamic Family Law Act 1984.

Raja Ahmad Shahrir Iskandar, 35, was present in court, accompanied by his lawyer Muhamad Nakhaei Ishak. However, Nurul Izzah was not in court.

The section deals with the dissolution of marriage through divorce by talak or court order.

The couple were married on May, 9 2003 and have a daughter, aged 7, and a son, 4. — Bernama
