Syariah Court throws out Anwar’s ‘friviolous’ suit

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s qazaf or false declaration suit against his sodomy accuser Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan was struck out by the Syariah High Court here today.

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.
