Further, it is pertinent to emphasize that it does not behove any other person to protest under the illiterate Protection Law or Act. It is trite that the illiterate protection Law was made for the protection of illiterate persons. It is the illiterate person that requires protection and he is the one who may seek the protection given by the law by complaining that the document prepared at his request and which was signed with his signature or his mark was not, prior to its being so signed, read over and explained to him. The Act is a law to protect and safeguard the illiterates from being exploited. It is not a law to penalize them.
