Come up with clear-cut dress code for govt buildings, facilities, says Lee Lam Thye

PETALING JAYA: Put an end to the dress code issue in government buildings and facilities by issuing a clear-cut guideline for all parties, says Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye.

The Alliance for a Safe Community chairman said the Chief Secretary to the Government should intervene and solve the issue.

"These issues have been happening far too often, and the authorities must take all necessary steps to prevent any recurrence," he said when contacted on Saturday (Dec 16).

He was commenting on an incident where a man wearing shorts was given a sarong to wear before being allowed into the Kuala Selangor Municipal Council office on Thursday (Dec 14).

A 53-second viral video shows the man putting on the sarong after being told to do so by a security guard.

On Monday (Dec 11), a 72-year-old man was turned away by a security guard at Hospital Seberang Jaya after he was deemed to be dressed inappropriately.

Lee added that such a move to stop visitors from entering a government facility was uncalled for and should not have occurred in the first place.

"It is better for the authorities to look for ways to improve their services rather than picking on people's attire," he said.
