THE Kuala Lumpur High Court has not set a date to hear the petroleum royalty suit filed by the former PAS state government against the Federal Government, state executive councillor Rosol Wahid (BN Ajil) said.
He said the new Barisan Nasional state government had not indulged in political discussions to withdraw the suit.
There is no such thing as political discussions on court matters, he said when replying to a question from Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang (PAS Rhu Rendang) during oral question time.
Datuk Wan Abdul Muttalib Wan Embong (PAS Batu Burok) interjected to ask whether the new state government would withdraw the suit.
However, Rosol refused to reply, saying it would be subjudice to do so since the matter was with the court.
You are wrongly assuming that the case would be withdrawn when the court itself has not set a date, he said.
In his written reply, Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said the former PAS government had spent RM448,000 from zakat to buy 32 micro-portable projectors.
He told Datuk Abu Bakar Ali (BN Kemasik) that the state government had yet to take legal action to recover the projectors.
Idris said the projectors were given to preachers from each of the 32 state constituencies by the Terengganu Islamic and Malay Cultural Council.
