PUTRAJAYA: Those worrying over summonses frozen under the Automated Enforcement System (AES) may need to wait just a little while more as an audit report is still under construction.
Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the Cabinet would decide on the status of AES summonses that were either frozen or paid before Sept 18 after the audit report was completed.
Hishammuddin did not give a clear timeline as to when the audit report would be received but promised that it would be done “soon”.
“In the takeover (of the AES operations and enforcement by the Government), I have emphasised that a transparent audit must be carried out.
“This is so that the people will know that there were no such profits to taint our good intention over issues involving the AES,” Hishammuddin told reporters after attending the ministry’s monthly gathering here yesterday.
On Dec 18, 2012, the Attorney-General’s Chambers decided to freeze all court proceedings related to summonses issued under AES after legal concerns were raised by certain groups.
The Government announced in August last year that it would take over the AES through a wholly-owned government company following public dissatisfaction over having a third party to implement and collect fines under the system.
Hishammuddin later announced a new fine of RM150 for all summonses issued under the AES starting Sept 18 last year. but the fine would increase gradually to the maximum RM300 for offenders who delayed settling the summonses.
