Anwar’s appeal against Muhyiddin’s proposal to suspend Parliament

After the High Court refused to grant him leave to challenge the action of former Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin in advising the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to suspend Parliament during the emergency period, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim filed an appeal with the Court of Appeal, which was set to be heard on September 28.

It has been confirmed by his lawyer, Sangeet Kaur Deo, that the appeal hearing will take place on that day.

The appeal was scheduled for case management in the presence of Wan Nor Aklima Wan Salleh, deputy registrar of the Court of Appeals.

On April 22, the High Court rejected the Opposition leader’s plea for permission to institute a judicial review challenging Muhyiddin’s recommendation to Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah to halt Parliament sittings under the state of emergency.
