chairman RonnieLiusaid.
However, he added that the state's main
concernwas the costs involvedin doing so.
Liuwas responding to comments made by
Selangor residents and the Selangor police
chief Datuk Khalid.Abu Bakar that the state
government seemed to be dragging its feet
over the matter in yesterday'sStarMetro.
As a responsible government, Liu said PR
wanted to ensure that publicfunds were used
accordingly.
"We were shocked to find out that a
RM120mil'contract had been signed by the
previousgovernm~nt with a private company
to install414 eovs in tIiestate.
"We have requested the companyto review
its costs and subsequently formed an independent panel to review the costs.

The other vital concern, he said, was the

cameras.
He said the images provided by the ecrvs
were not' clear and. they often failed to help
identify the criminals involved.

Under the circumstances, Uu said there was
no truth to allegations that the state was not
interested in installing eCfVs.
He said the state was very serious in its
efforts to ensure that the rakyat's money was
