Meeting with the Pengarah Mahkamah Kuala Lumpur on 15.05.2012

Dear Members of the KL Bar,

The following were discussed at a meeting with the Pengarah Mahkamah Kuala Lumpur, Puan
Al-Baishah Binti Haji Abd Manan, on 15 May 2012:

1. Members’ vehicles are permitted to access the main driveway area of the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex strictly for the purposes of dropping off passengers, bags and documents. Members are not to instruct their drivers to wait or linger in this area as it causes difficulties and inconvenience to other vehicles.

2. Vehicles without the Bar Council sticker may still be allowed to drive in but only for the purposes of dropping off passengers, bags and documents and must then leave the premises.

3. There have been several reported incidents of break-ins and theft of belongings from vehicles parked in the car park area outside the Court complex. Members are advised not to leave valuables in their vehicles. The security guards will assist where possible to monitor the situation in the said area.

Kindly take note.

Regards,
Brendan Navin Siva
Chairman
Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee
