PUTRAJAYA: Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail and the IGP Khalid Abu Baker will be allowed to intervene in the interfaith child custody case of S.Deepa.
The Court of Appeal allowed the application made in July and the reason was because the police had received two conflicting orders, issued by the Civil High Court and Syariah High Court
This was said to have created an issue over the conflict of jurisdiction of the powers of the courts in relation to the enforcement of the recovery order by the police.
The three-member appellate court panel led by Justice Balia Yusof Wahi made the decision after lawyer Joanne Leong, representing Deepa, who is from Seremban, did not object to the application.
Faiz Fadzil appeared for Izwan Abdullah.
The other panel members were Justice Mah Weng Kwai and High Court judge Badariah Sahamid.
Another similar case involving M.Indira Gandhi and K.Pathmanathan, from Ipoh, is currently being heard by the court.
