PUTRAJAYA, April 25 — The Court of Appeal today dismissed the appeal made by of a woman, born out of wedlock to a Muslim-Buddhist couple, to get the declaration that she is a non-Muslim.
Justice Datuk Umi Kalthum Abd Majid, who chaired the three-judge panel, rejected the woman’s appeal against a previous High Court decision that denied her court recognition as a non-Muslim.
“The Court dismissed the appeal and will issue no order to the appellant.
“We found that there is no error in the previous judgment made by the High Court Judicial Commissioner,” Umi Kalthum said at the Palace of Justice here today.
The three-man panel had delivered its decision after over an hour of hearing and backed by the previous conclusion made by High Court judicial commissioner Datuk Seri Tun Abd Majid Tun Hamzah.
