THE protest over the Bandar Mahkota Cheras road closure, which left several people injured on Tuesday, reached the Dewan via a motion tabled by an Opposition MP who wanted the matter debated. The Chair rejected it.
The drama began when Deputy Speaker Datuk Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar rejected the motion by Teo Nie Ching (DAP – Serdang) to debate the road closure issue.
Wan Junaidi said the motion could not be accepted as the concessionaire was involved in a court case with the housing developer over the same issue.
“Discussing the matter here (in Parliament) will tantamount to sub judice,” he said.
Meanwhile, a representative from the Bandar Mahkota Cheras road opening committee handed a memorandum to Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamed, demanding that the Government explain whether the toll concessionaire was allowed to barricade the access road.http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?fi ... parliament
