KUALA LUMPUR - The High Court will on Thursday give its decision on an application to strike out a suit by moderation advocate Mohamed Tawfik Ismail, who sought to challenge PAS' Private Member's Bill.

The Private Member's Bill, better known as RUU355, seeks to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 to give the court the power to mete out harsher punishments.

Tawfik's counsel Rosli Dahlan told reporters this after meeting High Court (Appellate and Special Powers) judge Justice Kamaludin Said in chambers Monday.

Rosli said Justice Kamaludin needed more time to consider certain points of law.

In March last year, Mohamed Tawfik, a former parliamentarian and the son of the second deputy prime minister Tun Dr Ismail Abdul Rahman, had filed an originating summons seeking to declare the Bill as unconstitutional and that it flouted Parliament procedures.

He had named Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia and its secretary Datuk Roosme Hamzah as defendants.

KUALA LUMPUR - MCA today revealed further discrepancies involving the multi-billion ringgit Penang cross-channel undersea tunnel project.

Its deputy president, Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong, said any changes to a project that was awarded by a state government needed to be reverted back to the latter, especially if it involved shareholdings.

He said failure to do so could render the project null and void.

Wee, however, said this was not done for the controversial Penang undersea tunnel project

PETALING JAYA - The continuous expose of the mega Penang undersea tunnel project by MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong appears to be rattling the DAP, said Barisan Nasional Strategic Communications (BNSC) deputy director Datuk Eric See-To.
