Aceh Shari'a Court Decision No. 86 of 2010

The Banda Aceh Shari'a Court (lower court) had granted the respondent a revocable divorce (talak satu raj'i), but also ordered the respondent to pay to the appellant IDR 3 million for iddah (100-day period after divorce has been granted), mut'ah (divorce compensation) and kiswah (clothing).

The Court found the lower court was correct in granting the respondent a divorce. It found, however, the figure of IDR 3 million to be unjust and inadequate and, accordingly, increased the monies payable by the respondent to the appellant to: IDR 2.5 million (iddah); IDR 750,000 (kiswah); IDR 1.75 million (mut'ah) and IDR 500,000 in retrospective financial support, payable monthly since January 2009.
