Investiture ceremony postponed indefinitely in Penang

GEORGE TOWN: The investiture of the state awards, medals and honour in Penang, which had been postponed several times since July last year, will be delayed again until further notice.

Speaker Datuk Law Choo Kiang said in a statement the investiture ceremony, in conjunction with the 82nd birthday of the Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas, was supposed to be held on February 6 and 7.

"The ceremony is now postponed due to the spike in Covid-19 cases and the movement control order.

The investiture ceremony was initially scheduled for July 11 last year but was postponed to November 21 due to the pandemic.

The ceremony was then postponed to January 16 this year, then again to February 6.

The list of recipients for the state awards, medals and honour had been gazetted on Dec 3 last year.
