Dear Members & Pupils of the Selangor Bar,

We took note of the announcement by the Minister of Defence on 4th May 2021 whereby 6 Selangor districts have been put under Movement Control Order (i.e. Hulu Langat, Petaling, Gombak, Klang, Kuala Langat and Sepang).

We have been informed by the Ketua Pengarah Mahkamah Selangor that matters before Courts within the 6 districts in Selangor will remain status quo until there are specific directions by the respective courts. As such members are advised to contact the relevant courts for directions on the status and progress of their ongoing matters between 6th of May 2021 until 17th May 2021. Please do take note that as inter-district travelling is restricted, members are advised to apply for a permit to travel.

The Ketua Pengarah Mahkamah Selangor has also notified us that members are to take guidance on the Standard Operating Procedures that will apply based on the Bar Council’s Circulars dated 4th May 2021 (Circular No. 152/2021) and 20th January 2021 (Circular No. 030/2021).

We will update members in the event of any changes.
