Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar was granted a divorce from her businessman husband Raja Ahmad Shahrir Iskandar Raja Ahmad today, said The Star Online.
The report said Raja Ahmad Shahrir uttered the talak or the pronouncement of divorce at 4.17pm before Shariah High Court judge Mohd Amran Mat Zain.
Nurul Izzah, 34, the eldest of opposition chief Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s children, filed the application for divorce in January last year.
She and Raja Ahmad Shahrir married on May 9, 2003, and have a daughter aged seven and son aged four.
The lower shariah court, in October, set December 8 to finalise the couple’s divorce after Raja Ahmad insisted that he still loved his wife and children and refused to utter the talak.
The politician and her estranged husband agreed to joint custody of their two children in December.
