Landowner seeks to settle civil suit with Batu MP

KUALA LUMPUR: A landowner and Tian Chua (pic) are considering a possible settlement over a civil dispute that the Batu MP had allegedly built Deepavali open house camps without consent last year.

Sentul Raya Sdn Bhd (SRSB), the registered landowner, claimed that the camps to hold the open house here on Nov 30 last year, were an act of intrusion.

High Court judge Justice Hue Siew Kheng has set Jan 27 for case management pending the outcome of a possible settlement.

Speaking to reporters here, Tian Chua's lawyer Latheefa Koya said the landowner has submitted a proposal for a settlement of the suit.

Lawyer B.Thangaraj acted for the landowner. The parties met the judge in chambers on Thursday.

In their affidavit affirmed on Nov 28 last year, SRSB said they believed that Tian Chua had no defence to hold the open house on its land without their permission.

Tian Chua, whose real name is Chua Tian Chang, has been named the sole defendant in the civil suit.

The plaintiff had applied for costs and further relief deemed fit by the court.
