"Father seeking child support from own son
KUALA TERENGGANU: The Lower Syariah Court here Tuesday fixed Aug 24 to mention a case of a man who is seeking RM20,000 in maintenance for child support of his two grandchildren from his own son.
Mustafa Ismail, 54, from Kampung Beladau Kolam, Manir, is also seeking for his son, Nasrum Mustafa, to pay RM800 a month for maintenance of the two children.
He wants the payment to be made through salary deductions and to be deposited into the bank accounts of the two children.
Mustafa, who is represented by lawyer, Fazru Anuar Yusof, claimed that Nasrun was an operations manager of a oil exploration company in Kuala Lumpur with a monthly earning of almost RM17,000.
He also claimed that Nasrum had not returned to the family home to meet his family, including his two children - a 15-year-old son and a 13-year-old daughter - since seven years.
Judge Kamarul Azmi Ismail, who set the date, also ordered Nasrum to be present in court on that day.
He also expressed hope that the case be settled amicably out of court to avoid causing embarrassment to any parties.
"Such a case is the second in the country and of course it will get media attention and published on the front-page of the newspapers. This should not happen between son and father.
"A child should be responsible for his parents and this is an embarrassing issue. The first case happened in Seremban involving a lecturer," he added.
Fazru Anuar told reporters outside the court that his client had been taking care of the two children for seven years after their parents divorced on Dec 30, 1998. Bernama"
