Parking and Air-Conditioning Problems at the Shah Alam Court Complex

Dear Members of the Bar,

The Selangor Bar Committee recently received complaints regarding lack of parking spaces at the Shah Alam Court Complex as well as poor air-conditioning in the Bankruptcy Division of the Shah Alam High Court. We have met the Director of the Selangor Courts to address the same and are happy to inform members as follows:

Parking Issues
Lawyers (with the Malaysian Bar car stickers on their cars) may now park at the 1st and 2nd floors of the Annex Building from 8.30am onwards. Further lawyers are also now allowed to park at the open air car park in front of the Right Wing of the Court Complex.

Based on the current arrangement between the Court and the Police as well as Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam (MBSA), cars parked along the side of the road along the court complex and along the Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri Selangor (SUK) building are not to be issued summons in the morning. The Director informed us that she will remind the said departments of this arrangement to ensure that cars are not issued summons.

To park at the Shah Alam Court Complex members are advised to put the Malaysian Bar car sticker on their cars. The said sticker may be purchased from the Selangor Bar Secretariat

Air-Conditioning
The Air-conditioning is now being upgraded. Members are requested to be patient for a while because the Director told us that the air-conditioner will be functioning properly shortly.

Thank you,

Vishnu Kumar
