Why were our Judges cleaning toilets, thus making them the most expensive part time cleaners in Malaysia, perhaps in the world?

30 July 2018


It was reported on Friday that members of the courthouse – including judges, magistrates and other staff members – have been carrying out their own cleaning work, such as sweeping floors and cleaning toilets.



About 20 workers are reported to have staged a strike allegedly because they were not paid their salaries as promised. The federal government has a contract with a cleaning company which runs until December.

According to a source, judges and staff also had to bring their own mops, brooms, brushes, pails and soap to facilitate cleaning works because these items were kept by the workers at a different place.


KOTA KINABALU: De facto law minister VK Liew has demanded an immediate report from a cleaning contractor following news accounts of judges and court staff having had to clean the toilets at the Kuala Lumpur court complex themselves.

Liew told FMT that he had given an order yesterday to the contractors to submit the report in 24 hours. “I expect to get it any time today although it’s not a working day. I don’t want to go there during working time and then only they give me the report,” he said.

Liew said he would visit the court complex soon to see for himself the conditions of the restrooms. “I will only speak further after I see for myself… we’ll see if any heads will roll,” Liew said.

“It is unacceptable to have this kind of deplorable conditions for the judges, lawyers, court officials and the public who come to the complex. Somebody must take responsibility,” he added.

Liew’s deputy Hanipa Maidin had earlier said the Prime Minister’s Department will probe reports that judges and staff at the Kuala Lumpur court complex have had to clean the toilets on their own due to the cleaners having been on strike since May.

Hanipa vowed that any cover-up will not be tolerated, saying he had also asked for a written report on the matter.

JOKE OF THE YEAR! Contractor fully paid but workers not paid. Judges and staff have to clean their own toilets! It only happens in Malaysia. Malaysia Boleh! Hahaha!



KUALA LUMPUR: A group of judges, led by Chief Justice, Tan Sri Richard Malanjum, along with the staff at the Kuala Lumpur Court Complex in Jalan Duta, took it upon themselves to clean the toilets there, after some 120 cleaners were reported to have been on strike since two weeks ago.

The gotong-royong, which started at 8.30am today, also saw some 200 court staff sweeping and moping floors as well as disposing the garbage.

Checks revealed that the cafe was the worst area affected, with piles of dirty dishes could be seen at the premises.

Joining the clean-up exercise was Chief Judge of Malaya Tan Sri Zaharah Ibrahim.

She said the matter would be resolved soon a discussion with the contractor appointed for the cleaning works at the complex, Perfect Three Solution Sdn Bhd, was held to identify the cause of the problem.

“There was a misunderstanding on what was promised and what was delivered. We carried out a discussion with the contractor and hope that any issues raised would be settled tomorrow (Monday),” said Zaharah when met after the clean-up exercise.
