The Court of Appeal today dismissed an appeal for leave for judicial review by Muslim Youth Movement of Malaysia (Abim) and two other NGOs to stop the government from signing the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA).

This came after the appellate court found that the treaty is not against the Federal Constitution.

The decision was made by a three-member bench led by Justice Rohana Yusof. The other judges were Justice Vernon Ong and Justice Abdul Rahman Sebli.
