Eyebrows have been raised after authorities in Putrajaya allowed a private function to be held right at the grand entrance of the Palace of Justice, the complex housing the Federal Court and Court of Appeal.
MalaysiaNow has learnt that Putrajaya Corporation, the local authority in charge of the admistrative capital, granted permission to former federal territories minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor to hold the wedding of his son.
This comes just two weeks after Tengku Adnan, the Putrajaya MP, was given a discharge not amounting to an acquittal by the High Court over a bribery case involving RM1 million.
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission had said that the politician was not yet off the hook, adding that it would re-submit investigation papers to the attorney-general after following up on a new development in the case.
A wedding invitation card sighted by MalaysiaNow reminded guests not to alight from their vehicles, as it is a “drive-thru” wedding.
It is also learnt that guests have been reminded to remain in their vehicles, with no pedestrian entrance.
The format is in keeping with the health ministry’s strict SOPs on social distancing, as Putrajaya is still under conditional movement control order or CMCO.
A source told MalaysiaNow that permission was granted to Tengku Adnan as he is the MP of Putrajaya, and following assurance that SOPs would be followed.
MalaysiaNow is awaiting a response from Putrajaya Corporation.
