Dr. Hiew the Kota Kinabalu MP received complaint regarding the new painting work applied to furniture in the court room in the Kota KInabalu High cour


Dr. Hiew the Kota Kinabalu MP received complaint regarding the new painting work applied to furniture in the court room in the Kota KInabalu High court which caused severe smell emitting from the new paint. The people including lawyers complain that the strong smell caused them to feel headache and developing giddiness, and can not concentrate on their work. They have to cover their nose with handkerchief.

Dr. Hiew went to check the court room yesterday and found the complaint was valid, the room is filled with the smell from the paint and the thinner used in the paint job. The room is enclosed with air conditioning which made the situation worse. The paint work was carried out during the public holiday, and when the court sitting resumed on Tuesday, the smell knocked everybody off. Just imaging how can they work in such a condition where everyone has to think and to concentrate on the case on trial.

Dr. Hiew stayed in the room for just a short 5 minutes already feeling giddy, how can the people in the court room stayed for few hours? In a normal case, the room must be left unoccupied for a period of 5 days to clear of all gas emission from the wet paint. The gas emitted will affect the nervous system of a person and caused discomfort. If there is further paint job in the other court room, it is advisable to leave it vacant for at least 5 days before it can be used. The federal JKR must be careful to protect our learned judges, lawyers and every body using the court room, these are the people we must protect and take care with upmost priority. Therefore, arrange the paint job in proper order and give the occupant other room to use while undertaking the paint work.

亚庇高等法庭的油漆味引起头痛
亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士接到投诉有关亚庇高等法庭的审讯室的新油漆冒出难闻的气味。 投诉人包括律师抱怨说,该强烈的油漆气味,使他们感到头痛和不舒服,不能集中精神工作。 他们必须以手帕掩盖鼻子。

邱博士亲自前往法院检查,发现投诉是确实的,该审讯室里充满油漆的气味。 在封闭空调室里使情况变得更糟糕。 该油漆工作是在周末假期中进行,当星期二法院开庭时,气味使到大家很难受。 在这种情况之下,他们怎么能够专心思考和工作,不能集中精神处理案件。

邱博士在该室内短短5分钟的停留已经感到晕眩,他人在审讯室怎么可能呆上几个小时呢? 在正常情况下,室内新上的油漆必须空置期为5天,以清除所有气体才能够使用。 气体的排放会影响人体中枢神经系统,并造成不适。 如果在该法庭有进一步的油漆工作,最好空置至少5天然后才可以使用。 联邦工务局必须小心,以保护我们的法官,律师和每个使用审讯室的人,我们必须优先保护和照顾他们的健康和工作环境。 因此,应该安排适当的油漆工作程序,并提供其他的审讯室来替代使用。
