Unconstitutional For State To Confer Powers To Syariah Courts

Dato Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, Constitutional Lawyer

Unconstitutional For State To Confer Powers To Syariah Courts

A nine-member panel at The Federal Court unanimously decided that it is unconstitutional for the Selangor legislative assembly to pass a provision to grant judicial review power to the state Shariah High Court. This decision relates to a judicial review application against a Selangor religious authority’s fatwa labelling Sisters In Islam as “deviant”. We speak to the lawyer representing SIS about the significance of the Federal Court outcome.
