UALA LUMPUR: As a short-term measure, a standard operating procedure is being

drafted to tighten provisions relating to child marriage.

The Government intends to ban the practice eventually.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa says the
draft is being prepared and should be ready by the end of this month.

“This is just a temporary measure and the long term is the part that is more
important.

Mujahid, however, admitted that there were challenges in terms of technicalities in


a bid to ban child marriage.

“It is not just like saying, okay, let’s go and ban it. We need to amend the laws
and there are a lot of stakeholders.

“There are the syariah laws at state level and the civil law which allows for such

to see a total stop and ban to it.

“This is the first time we will be having this so please give us some time.

“The end result is we are hoping to end child marriage.

“Once the federal (govt) has come up with, perhaps, an amendment to the law, we
hope the states would follow it, no point having a law that is only followed at
federal level,” he said.

“At the moment, we are just taking a proactive step to come up with a strict SOP
first,” he added.

He also reaffirmed the Government’s commitment to
