MANY men are taking advantage of the tebus talak system to “buy” people's wives.
A man in Johor paid RM20,000 to the syariah court to pay for a divorce so he could marry Normah, 31, Harian Metro reported.
The RM20,000 was payment for tebus talak (divorce by redemption) as Normah's husband did not agree to a divorce by consent.
She told the Malay daily that the man was willing to part with such a huge sum of money as he was determined that they be together.
Normah said she had told her then husband of her intention to be with the man, who was her ex-schoolmate, but he refused to give his consent to a divorce.
“So I had to go to court which allowed the tebus talak divorce,” said Normah, who married the man four months after the divorce.
Syariah Lawyers Association of Malaysia deputy president Musa Awang said there were many men who took advantage of the tebus talak system .
He told the daily he had handled 20 tebus talak divorce cases this year and most of the time, the money was provided to the women by their husbands-to-be.
