Trial by night: Kuantan Syariah court holds night hearing

The Kuantan Syariah High Court proceeding will continue until 11pm to settle backlog of cases.

Pahang Syariah Court registrar Muhammad Azhari Abd Rahman said the night proceeding was held on the initiative of Syariah High Court judge Rahman Md Yunus to expedite settling of backlog cases.

“It will be trial run to see the response from the public as well as the lawyers because it is their rest time, apart from logistics problems for those staying outside of this district,” he added.
