Attorney-General's Chambers objects to Teresa Kok's judicial review bid

KUALA LUMPUR: The Attorney-General's Chambers (AGC) is objecting to a leave application filed by Seputeh MP Teresa Kok (pic) and the president of a consumers association in their judicial review application.

Kok and Selangor and Federal Territory Consumers Association president Mohd Yusof Abdul Rahman are challenging the hike in public parking charges and the privatisation of parking collections.

Speaking after proceedings in chambers on Wednesday, Senior Federal Counsel Natra Idris said that the AGC would be raising a preliminary objection against the leave application.

She added that High Court deputy registrar Norazlin Othman has set Dec 7 for Kuala Lumpur City Hall's bid to be added as a "putative respondent" to give views during the hearing of the application for leave.

Kok and Mohd Yusof filed the judicial review application on Oct 7 to get the High Court to strike out the order by Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor and Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Mohd Amin Nordin Abdul Aziz to increase  public parking charges.

They want the court to set aside the same order which appointed Vista Summerose and Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan to collect the parking payments.
