Today, we carry the first of the majority judgment of the Court of Appeal delivered on Monday. The landmark decision overturned a High Court decision and declared Section 15(5)(a) of the Universities and University Colleges Act 1971 to be unconstitutional on grounds it was unreasonable and breached the constitutional guarantee of freedom of speech.

This is the judgment of Justice Mohd Hishamudin Mohd Yunus, who sat with Justices Linton Albert and Low Hop Bing, whose dissenting judgment was published yesterday.
