Syariah Court throws out Anwar’s ‘friviolous’ suit
The Syariah High Court said the qazaf application made by Anwar against his accuser was “frivolous, vexatious and an abuse of the Islamic justice system.”
Today’s decision was based in preliminary objections filed by Islamic Affairs Minister Datuk Jamil Khir Baharom’s lawyer Zainal Rijal Abu Bakar.
Anwar had filed an application for the court to order Federal Territory (FT) Syariah chief prosecutor
Shamsuddin Hussain to charge his former aide for making false accusations about being sodomised by him.
