KUALA LUMPUR: The divorce proceedings between actor Sharnaaz Ahmad and his wife Noor Nabila Mohamad Noor have yet to reach a conclusion.
Noor Nabila, 35, has expressed disappointment that the proceedings have been going on for too long.
She said: "These divorce proceedings have been going on for a year, and I don't see any effort on his part to save our marriage,” she told reporters at the Kuala Lumpur Lower Syariah Court after arbitration proceedings involving her representative and Sharnaaz's, which failed to reach a settlement, today.
As a result, the court appointed new arbitrators and fixed Feb 27 for the process to be continued.
Section 47 (14) and Section 48B of the Islamic Family Law Act (Federal Territories) 1984 empowers the court to appoint arbitrators from amongst the immediate relatives of both parties in divorce proceedings.
Nabila said: “Sharnaaz could've sped things up by pronouncing a divorce. I really don't want to continue with this marriage, for I can get on with life and so can he.
“We have a son Jayden whom we have to look after and it is not good for him if we prolong proceedings. It is best to complete things fast and look after Jayden without bad feelings towards each other."
Nabila added: "I don't understand why he wants to prolong things. Does he want to save our marriage? I don't see him making any effort to do so."
Sharnaaz chose to keep mum and said: "There's nothing to say for now."
Nabila was represented by her lawyer Datuk Zainul Rijal Abu Bakar while Sharnaaz was represented by Datuk Akberdin Abdul Kader.
On Sept 11 last year, the court ordered the formation of a Conciliatory Committee to resolve their marital problems.
However, Sharnaaz, 34, filed a nusyuz (disobedience) application against his wife on Sept 30.
In the committee's proceedings, Sharnaaz chose one of his close friends as his representative, while Nabila chose her stepfather Abdul Halim Khan.
Sharnaaz and Nabila were married on March 31, 2017 in Petaling Jaya and they have a year-old son Jebat Jayden.
Nabila is the sister of actress, entrepreneur and television host Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor.
