Telenisa Statistics and Findings 2022
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Telenisa. Telenisa was established in 2003 to provide legal advisory service for women and men, to inform them on their legal rights under the Islamic Family Law and the Syariah Criminal Oﬀences Law in Malaysia. Telenisa’s mission is to deliver gender-sensitive and non-biased advice on related legal provisions, practices and expectations when a client has dealings with Shariah laws, courts and other institutions within the Shariah legal framework. Telenisa also seeks to build awareness and understanding of rights under the Shariah legal system. Telenisa was one of the ﬁrst legal clinics that focused on Shariah Laws in Malaysia.
From 2016 onwards, Telenisa produced an annual publication of its statistics. These statistics provide a snapshot of the types of legal issues that are most prevalent for the year. There is also an analysis to show trends over a few years. These statistics have been critical in supporting advocacy for law reform in Shariah laws, or to bring awareness to issues women face within the Shariah system.
The publication also available in Malaysia language.
