PUTRAJAYA (May 2): Court premises remain closed and non-operating, due to the extension of the Movement Control Order (MCO), pending an instruction from the government.

Federal Court chief registrar Ahmad Terrirudin Mohd Salleh said on March 17 that courts throughout the country would be closed and proceedings for civil and criminal cases postponed, and new dates would be announced later.

However, he said, proceedings for remand, new cases and bails would be carried out as usual.
