PETALING JAYA: Still relevant, the Road Transport Department (JPJ) has admitted it went too far in forcing a decently dressed woman to wear a sarong before attending to her.
The department, in a press statement, apologised to Suzanna G.L. Tan and acknowledged there is 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.”
The department however pointed out their offices are subject to a dress code at their premises, much like other government ministries and departments.
The statement added the JPJâ€™s priority is to ensure the public is provided with pleasant and efficient service.
