Aceh Shari'a Court Decision No. 35 of 2009

The appellant sought to challenge the decision of the Bireuen Shari'a Court (lower court), which had granted the respondent an irrevocable divorce. The Court concurred with the lower court, however, citing evidence of continued quarrelling between the two parties, as well as the fact that the parties had already been separated for two years. Therefore, it found the lower court was correct in granting the respondent an irrevocable divorce (talak satu ba'in sughra), pursuant to art 39(1) and (2) of Law No. 1 of 1974, art 19(f) of Government Regulation No. 9 of 1975, and art 116(f) of the Compilation of Islamic Laws.
