Sarong cover-up: JPJ admits it went too far

By THE STAR | 9 June 2015

PETALING JAYA: Forcing a decently dressed woman to wear a sarong before attending to her was a step too far, admitted the Road Transport Department (JPJ).

The JPJ, in a press statement, apologised to Suzanna G.L. Tan and acknowledged there was no such policy.

"JPJ would like to firmly state there is no regulation that indicates visitors must be provided with a sarong. Clearly, this is an inconvenience to the visitor," it said.

However, it pointed out that visitors to JPJ offices were subject to a dress code, just like other Government departments.

The statement added the JPJ’s priority was to ensure the public was provided with pleasant and efficient service.
