Dear Members & Pupils of the Selangor Bar,

We refer to the announcement on total lockdown phase 1 that will be implemented from 1st to 14th June 2021 (Lockdown Phase 1 period).

The Selangor Bar Committee notes the necessity of a total lockdown announced by the Government due to the immense pressure on the Healthcare system of the country. As such in compliance with the announcement that social and economic sectors are to remain close save and except as exempted by the Government, Selangor Bar’s Secretariat as well as the Selangor Legal Aid Centre will be operating on a Work From Home basis from 1st till 14th June 2021.

We will endeavour to provide uninterrupted support and service to our members and the public during this Lockdown Phase 1 period. Both the Selangor Bar Secretariat as well as Selangor Bar Legal Aid Centre may be contacted via emails as follows:-

Selangor Bar Secretariat, Mr. N.K. Thinnagaran [email protected]

Selangor Legal Aid Centre, Ms. Sattiawani Perumal [email protected]

The Selangor Bar Committee anticipates issues cropping up about matters in Court as well as with other authorities and as such the Urgent Response Team and Court Liaision Sub-Committee have been tasked to assist members during this period. We will be updating members about any changes periodically.

Let us all work together to bring down the number of positive Covid-19 cases down in Malaysia by taking the necessary measures to maintain a safe home and working environment.

Thank you.

Kokila Vaani Vadiveloo
