KUALA LUMPUR: The first two Construction Courts in Malaysia, one each in Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam, were launched yesterday by the Chief Justice of Malaysia Tun Arifin Zakaria. These specially designated courts, to deal with disputes in the construction industry, came into being in April last year after the Construction Industry Development Board made a proposal to the judiciary in January 2013.
Works Minister Datuk Fadillah Yusof said in his opening remarks that the establishment of the courts “… will certainly transform the way construction businesses in the country operate. The construction industry stakeholders can now have their disputes resolved by judges with specialist knowledge and experience in construction cases”.
The establishment of the courts makes Malaysia the second country in the world to have a specialist court for construction, after the UK.
