After the tragic LRT incident on the Kelana Jaya line that shook Malaysians last month, ex-Prasarana chairman Tajuddin Abdul Rahman has been under fire for the way he handled the situation.
The Pasir Salak MP said he was humiliated and challenged those parties to prove he was insensitive during the PC. He considers taking legal action against those who damaged his reputation.
Referring to the MP’s statement, MUDA’s vice president Lim Wei Jiet says the party is offering pro bono legal assistance to anyone being sued by Tajuddin Rahman on account of “humiliating and tarnishing” his image regarding the LRT incident.
“MUDA upholds and adheres to freedom of speech. The public should not be dragged into court simply for criticising a public official or politician,” he tweeted.

Two days after the collision, which left 123 injured and 60 hospitalised, Tajuddin was sacked from his position as Prasarana’s chairman.
Soon after, reports of his alleged corruption scandals during his position of power surfaced, along with a dedicated website skandaltajuddin.com that archives all the allegations.
Lim said anyone who needs legal assistance in the matter may contact them by emailing to [email protected]
