MALAYSIAN transsexual Fatine will only face action under the Syariah law should he return and re-register his marriage here, reported Kosmo!
Fatine's marriage to a British man Ian Young, 30, in London last May has created waves both in Britain and here.
Quoting Syariah Lawyers Association vice-president Musa Awang, the report said that Fatine, whose real name is Mohammed Fazdil Min Bahari, had escaped punishment for same-sex marriages as he had wed overseas.
"If the same-sex marriage was registered here, it will be deemed as an insult to Islam," he told the tabloid.
Those found guilty under the Syariah law could face a maximum of three years' jail, RM5,000 fine or both.
Fatine could also face another charge should he return wearing women's clothes.
Both Fatine and Young have set up a Facebook chat group, which currently has 2,000 friends, to draw support for their plight.
