Govt re-establishes committee to empower syariah judicial institution


The government has agreed to re-establish the Syariah Courts Empowerment Committee and appoint 12 eminent figures as members of the committee.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Religious Affairs) Senator Idris Ahmad (above) said the move was taken to empower and uphold the syariah judicial system holistically, in line with the position of Islam in the Federal Constitution.

He said Othman Mustapha, former director-general of the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim), was appointed as the chairperson of the committee, which was first established in 2017.

"The government is very confident that his vast experience in the administration of Islamic affairs will help the government's efforts to strengthen the syariah judicial institution," Idris said in a statement yesterday.

Some of the other eminent figures in the committee are solicitor-general Ahmad Terrirudin Mohd Salleh, Public Service Department director-general Mohd Shafiq Abdullah, Syariah Judiciary Department director-general Mohd Na'im Mokhtar and incumbent of the Institution of Malay Rulers Chair at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Shamrahayu Ab Aziz.
