Malaysian Court of Appeal Dismissed Church Application On Allah Issue
I was at the Palace of Justice court complex this morning for the hearing of the “Allah” issue but had to leave early because my father has other important appointments after lunch.
And just now, the Malaysian Court of Appeal rules that the church application to strike out the government’s appeal against a High Court ruling that allowed a Catholic weekly newspaper Herald to use the word “Allah” is dismissed.
Substantive appeal will be held on September 10, 2013.
The three-person panel lead by Justice Abu Samah Nordin, and including Justices Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim and Rohana Yusuf, were hearing submissions by the Church, Government and the Islamic religious councils from the states of Terengganu, Selangor, Kedah, Johor, Wilayah Persekutuan and Malacca, which were made intervener in the suit.
