PETALING JAYA: The public caning of two women by the Terengganu Syariah High Court "is a travesty and a grave miscarriage of justice", according to two women's rights groups.

In a joint press statement by Justice for Sisters and Sisters in Islam, they pointed out that Prison Act 1955 and Prison Regulations 2000 stipulates that caning can only be carried out against prisoners.
