Zuraida, 64, and Sheikh Mustapha, 74, as the plaintiffs named Haryati Mohd Redza, 31, and Haryati's mother, Kamar Aziah Abdullah, 61, as defendants.

The parents of the nation's first astronaut were represented by syarie lawyer, Zulqarnain Lukman, while Haryati and Kamar Aziah were represented by syarie lawyer Suriati Abdul Ghani.
