In law, acquiescence occurs when a person knowingly stands by without raising any objection to the infringement of his or her rights, while someone else unknowingly and without malice aforethought acts in a manner inconsistent with their rights. As a result of acquiescence, the person whose rights are infringed may lose the ability to make a legal claim against the infringer, or may be unable to obtain an injunction against continued infringement. The doctrine infers a form of "permission" that results from silence or passiveness over an extended period of time.

Edge Weekly has a follow-up story on the Malaysia Airport Holding Berhad's tender for aerotrain. In their earlier expose, it was about last minute change in tender specification. This issue is about change in consultant.
There may have been allegation Jacobs were sidelined from involvement in the selection process in favour of Ch2M. MAHB corrected it. Again, their explanation mentioned is it is common practise.
Mentioned in the article, Edge claimed the tender bids came in between RM600 million and RM760 million.
It is vastly different from the estimated RM400 million budget mentioned in this blog's May 26th posting here. The tender bids may have came in at lower than RM400 million with RM320 million as possible bottom.

On May 28th, Mark Staib, Executive Director of PETRA Transit System Sdn Bhd technically explained that the driverless operation of Putra LRT is designed, tested and proven to avoid two trains coming within close proximity to each other. In short, driver cannot be blame.
His article came a day after Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin committed to give assurance that no such accident will recur and Special Task Force formed to investigate. It all seemed a standard response in facing accident and tragedy.
Government carried out the first two actions in the accident that caused injury to 200 people in which 47 are not light injury. First to ensure the injured are attended to. Secondly to commit to the task force.
However, the development is not encouraging and typical holes as in past public enquiries surfaced. There are parties doubting the independence of the Task Force created.
