Until recently, Dato’ Vohrah was active in both domestic and international arbitration. He also served as a consultant with Lee Hishamuddin Allen & Gledhill from 2002 until 2016.

Dato’ Vohrah is survived by his wife, Datin Beatrix Vohrah, a retired law professor, two children and four grandchildren.

He will be sorely missed by the SIDREC team. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
