Landmark #10: Child Custody

On February 11, the Federal Court decided on the protracted child custody case involving Izwan Abdullah and Deepa Subramaniam. After interviewing both children separately in chambers, Justice Tan Sri Raus Sharif in a unanimous decision awarded Izwan custody of the son, and Deepa custody of the daughter. Explaining how this ruling will affect custodial disputes in child conversion cases going forward is Sharmila Sekaran, a lawyer as well as director of Voice of the Children, a child advocacy group.
