Sperm 'abuse' suit dismissed

Sperm 'abuse' suit dismissed

The case that raised a furore in Malaysia had an anti-climatic ending.

A Bosnian man had sued his former girlfriend for "abusing" his sperm to get a child with European genes.

The woman, a Malaysian, counter-sued, accusing him of verbally and physically abusing her.

But both suits came to a quick end in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court on Tuesday after they were dismissed, The Star reported.

Judge Timothy Finlayson Joel, delivering his judgment in chambers, allowed the 29-year-old woman's application to strike out Mr Ervin Ahbabovic's suit against her.

Her lawyer, Mr James Ee Kah Fuk, told reporters that the judge had on his own volition also struck out the woman's counter-claim against Mr Ahbabovic, 41, a Bosnian Muslim who is a Malaysian permanent resident.


Mr Ahbabovic's counsel, Mr Mohammed Nasser Yusof, called the result a win-win situation after both suits were dismissed.

"We are consulting our clients if they want to appeal, as there are still avenues to do so," The Star quoted him as saying.

Neither Mr Ahbabovic nor the woman, a businesswoman who demanded her identity remain private, were present at the court.
