GEORGE TOWN: The High Court here has set Feb 9 for case management of Penang PAS treasurer Iszuree Ibrahim’s application for leave to seek judicial review.

He is challenging the Penang State Executive Council, Penang Municipal Council Permanent Committee and Penang State Government for dismissing him from the Penang Municipal Council Permanent Committees and freezing his allocation.

His counsel Mohd Haris Abdullah told reporters that senior assistant registrar Nor Azah Idris set the date yesterday, in chambers.

Iszuree filed the application on Nov 14 last year, naming the Penang State Executive Council, Penang Municipal Council Permanent Committee and Penang State Government as first, second, and third respondent.

He is seeking an order to invalidate the second respondent’s letter dated Sept 29, 2014 and the first respondent’s decision on Sept 25, 2014 to remove him from all his posts and freeze his allocation.

Should the court allow his application, he also wants an interim order to suspend the first respondent’s decision relayed to him through two letters by the second respondent dated Sept 26 and Sept 29, pending hearing of the substantive motions.

He is seeking damages and other relief deemed fit by the court. — Bernama
