KUCHING: The Faculty of Law, SEGi College Sarawak and the Islamic Information Centre (IIC) jointly hosted a forum entitled ‘Islamic Law in Malaysia’ at SEGi College Sarawak on Thursday.

The event was the first of several activities to be jointly organised to benefit the college’s law students.

“In future, SEGi law students will visit Syariah Court and a forum on ‘Environmental Law and Islam’ will be held which will enlighten students of the messages regarding the environmental conservation contained in Quran verses,” it said in a press statement yesterday.

The speaker for the forum ‘Islamic Law in Malaysia’ was Norhaza Ahmed Redzuan Abdullah, the Sarawak chief syariah prosecutor from 1998-2013, and a syariah officer for Sarawak Islamic Council in 2014.

Norhaza is also a member of the Advocates’ Association of Sarawak (AAS) and a legal practitioner.

The moderator for the question and answer session was the chief executive officer of IIC, Zabariah Matali.

Zabariah spearheads a series of programmes in 2016 under the banner of ‘Understanding Islam’.

She is committed to inter-faith tolerance and is highly respected for the efforts she had made to reach out to the leaders of other religions in Sarawak and holding some dialogues and at the same time, promoting mutual understanding.

‘Islamic Law in Malaysia’ forum was held in conjunction with the holy month of Ramadan.

The participants later held a break-of-fast with the speaker and the moderator as well as the principal of SEGi College Ivy Lau and head of School of the Faculty of Law, Donna Barclay.
