Indelible Ink Not Used In 12th General Election Disposed Of

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 22 (Bernama) — The indelible ink bought for use in the 12th general election has been disposed of according to procedure set by Government Regulations that is by a burning process.
Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Liew Vui Keong, said the ink that could not be used due to security and legal problems was disposed of on Nov 25.
He said this in a written reply to a question by Senator Tunku Abdul Aziz Tunku Ibrahim on the decision made on the indelible ink that was bought and was to be sold but its expiry date had passed.
On another question regarding inquests that had not been carried out or were postponed, Liew said the such inquests mostly had problems related to witnesses not attending or they could not be traced.
“No specific action is taken to speed up the inquests besides issuing arrest warrants for witnesses who fail to attend court although they had been subpoenaed,” he said in a written reply to a question by Tunku Abdul Aziz in the Dewan Negara here on Tuesday.
