PETALING JAYA: The Court of Appeal has reinstated a Mongolian woman’s civil suit seeking declarations that she was unlawfully detained and sexually assaulted by a former police inspector.

This comes after the Kuala Lumpur High Court had on Jan 22, 2021, struck out the suit against Hazrul Hizham Ghazali as the woman could not deposit a RM70,000 payment for security for costs.

In a statement, law firm Thomas Philip Advocates and Solicitors said the Court of Appeal overturned the High Court’s decision yesterday, with her civil action set to go for a full trial.

Case management has been set for July 15.

“Criminal proceedings are ongoing against Hazrul, who faces multiple counts of rape and outrage of modesty in the Klang sessions court, with continued dates scheduled for July this year,” said the firm.
