Dear Lawyers and Pupils-In-Chambers,

We refer to the announcement on 22.5.2021 by the Menteri Kanan Pertahanan pertaining to the tighter restrictions of the current Movement Control Order.

The Selangor Legal Aid Centre will be complying with the Standard Operating Procedures announced to ensure minimum contact with our staff. However, the wheels of justice must continue to grind and access to justice for those in need must be made available. The Selangor Legal Aid Centre shall remain open to the public due to the importance of legal aid in the midst of the Movement Control in place.

As such, the Selangor Legal Aid Centre will be implementing a rotation schedule for its staff from 27 May 2021 to 7 June 2021 so that there will be uninterrupted access to legal aid during this trying times.

As such, the Selangor Legal Aid Centre will be operating at a 60% capacity but all the staff will remain contactable during this period.

Members are also advised to comply with the SOPs set in place during this period and be guided accordingly.

Thank you.

Kokila Vaani Vadiveloo
