Jawi script on signboards does not infringe on Federal Constitution, appeals court rules

THE Court of Appeal has rejected the appeal of two Kuantan businessmen over the usage of Jawi on signboards at their premises.

The three-member panel chaired by appellate court judge Yaacob Md Sam in an unanimous decision ruled that there was no irrationality, unreasonableness or unlawfulness of the directive by the state authority to implement the use of Jawi script on signages of business premises.
