ARREARS owed to Indah Water Konsortium by domestic customers totalled RM112.6mil as of April 30. 

Commercial users owed the company RM77.6mil, Deputy Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk M. Kayveas said. 

The amount was based on arrears not paid for more than a year. 

“So far, 10,598 summonses have been filed while another 4,950 summonses had been served,” he told Fong Po Kuan (DAP – Batu Gajah) in a written reply. 

Ong sits next Pak Lah 

MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting occupied the seat next to Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi at the Dewan Rakyat yesterday. 

That seat previously belonged to Labis MP Datuk Seri Dr Ling Liong Sik, who has moved to Block C where most of the senior MPs are. 

Several MPs thumped the table when Dr Ling walked in as a show of support. 

Batu Berendam MP Tun Abdul Ghafar Baba also made an appearance yesterday. 

Clause in Bill dropped 

THE Government has decided to drop a clause in the National Service Training Bill which spells out the offences in inciting people to evade duties or to oppose the national service. 

Those found guilty could be fined up to RM10,000 or jailed not more than two years under that clause. 

MPs have been notified of the change yesterday. 

Expanded definition 

A COMMITTEE studying amendments on the Domestic Violence Act has suggested that the definition of domestic violence be expanded to include mental and emotional torture. 

The Government had set up a counselling unit to help women who faced domestic problems, the Women and Family Development Ministry said in a written reply to Tiong Thai King (BN – Lanang). 

Muslims in gaming 

THERE are currently eight Muslims holding posts as directors in six gaming companies. 

These companies were under the Genting and Berjaya Groups, the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry said in a written reply to Mohamad Sabu (PAS – Kuala Kedah).
