Legal tour series to land in Melaka first


ALOR GAJAH: Melaka will be the first state to receive the national legal tour programme involving agencies under the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law), such as the Legal Aid Department, Insolvency Department, and the Election Commission (EC).

The tour series is expected to be launched by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar at the end of this month before being expanded to other states, said his deputy Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin.

“The tour series will also involve townhall sessions, dialogues, legal aid service, exhibitions and visits, depending on the needs and demand of the agencies under the department in every state involved.

“The objective of the event is to allow for wider exposure and understanding to the local populace on national legal aspects, other than the functions and roles of the agencies involved, and the services offered to the people,” she told Bernama after launching the 2021 Al-Quran and Fardu Ain Class Assessment Test Excellence Awards Ceremony here yesterday, where 72 outstanding pupils received certificates and cash.
