KOTA KINABALU (Bernama) – Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman described the RM63-million Sabah State Syariah Court complex as something that will pioneer and trigger the efforts to develop the sanctity of Islam in a continous and planned manner in the state.
He said the construction of the complex, expected to be completed in 2018, had come at the right time and was relevant and significant to Islamic beliefs. According to him, the building of the complex was also in tandem with the socio-cultural development in its surroundings, with its location also close to Sabah’s borders with neighbouring countries Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia and the Philippines. I believe when the Syariah Court complex is fully operational, it will not only be a symbol of grandeur and pride for the Muslim community, especially in Sabah, but more importantly, it would be the hope of the people, especially the Muslims to receive the best quality of service.
“Therefore, it is the hope of the state government that the Syariah Court Complex will not only be able to give the same standard of facilities as the Civil Courts, but it would also give a positive impact on the effectiveness of the rendering of services by the Syariah Court on the whole,” he said.
