Circular No: 092/2021
Date: 12 May 2021
Dear Members of the Kuala Lumpur Bar,
We understand from members that matters registered under Code 53 in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Courts are being solely attended to and disposed of by Tuan Zulhazmi Bin Abdullah at Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court 4. This has inadvertently caused delay in the disposal of ongoing matters and has led to a backlog in such cases.
Please be informed that we have raised this issue with the Managing Judge of the Civil Subordinate Courts and requested that more Sessions Court Judges be assigned to hear such matters.
We have been informed by the Managing Judge that from 1 May 2021, Kuala Lumpur Sessions Courts 5, 12, 14 & 15 have also been assigned to hear matters registered under Code 53 in addition to Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court 4. However, these Courts would only be assigned to hear matters registered in 2020. We trust that this would assist in clearing the current backlog being faced.
We continue to urge members to provide feedback to the KLBC Civil Practice & Court Liaison Committee should there be any issues that may be encountered.
