KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here will hear an application by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and activists seeking to refer several constitutional questions on the emergency proclamation to the Federal Court on July 22.

The parties want the Federal Court to determine the validity of amendments to Article 150(8) of the Federal Constitution, and whether the courts have jurisdiction to look into the matter.

Judge Ahmad Kamal Md Shahid fixed the date after the groups’ lawyer, New Sin Yew, told the court that they, the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) and five intervenors have filed their affidavits for the application.

PAS leaders Ahmad Fadhli Shaari, Khairil Nizam Khirudin and Mohd Apandi Mohamad, and PKR’s Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin and Mohd Yusmadi Mohd Yusoff were made intervenors during the last hearing on April 1.
