Deputy Pahang Speaker issued summons for viral traffic offence

KUANTAN: Pahang State Legislative Assembly Deputy Speaker Lee Chin Chen has confirmed that he was issued a summon for a traffic offence after a picture of the offence went viral on social media last Sunday (Feb 5).

Lee, who is also Bilut assemblyman said he had given his statement to the Bentong District Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department regarding the incident.

"I have given my cooperation and a summon was issued. Like all Malaysians, I will pay the summon soon,” he said in a statement here on Tuesday (Feb 7).

Lee also expressed his appreciation to the police for their transparency in carrying out their duties.

Bentong OCPD Supt Zaiham Mohd Kahar in a short statement also informed that a summon was issued under Section 79(2) of the Road Transport Act (RTD) 1987.

Last Sunday, a photograph of Lee's vehicle was uploaded on a Facebook account of a social media holder who questioned if a Wakil Rakyat can break the law while an 'ordinary citizen’ will be subject to enforcement action.

The picture shows Lee's car exiting the junction of Golden Court, Jalan Tras Bentong to the main road which actually has a 'No Entry' sign.- Bernama
