Move Out Or Pay Fine, FT Minister Tells KL Soup Kitchens

PIC: The Malay MailPIC: The Malay MailKUALA LUMPUR: Soup kitchens will be fined if they do not shift out of the capital city by Monday, Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said today as the government seeks to clean up its streets of the homeless.

The Federal Territories minister said he has instituted a 2km-radius around shopping mall Lot 10 in the Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle business hub, where non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are prohibited from feeding the homeless.

“The image of my city is very bad,” Tengku Adnan told a press conference here.

“If I don’t do this sort of thing, society won’t be disciplined,” he added, when asked if he was being too harsh.

MORE TO COME
