130 suing Selangor government for RM14m

SHAH ALAM: A total of 130 landowners in the Desa Kerayong Indah housing project in Kuala Selangor has filed a RM14mil suit against the Selangor government for failing to complete the project. 

Also named as defendants are the Kuala Selangor District Land Office and project developer Bumi Circle Sdn Bhd. The suit was filed yesterday at the High Court Registry here. 

In their statement of claim, the plaintiffs said the state government had handed over the lands to Bumi Circle in 1998 for the development of houses or shops covering 86ha and the project was supposed to be completed in 2005. 

However, it failed even though the plaintiffs had paid 10% of the price and legal fees for the sale and purchase of the houses. 

Last year, the Selangor government and Kuala Selangor District Land Office appointed a new developer, Probil Sonati Development Sdn Bhd, to continue the project. 

On April 5 this year, however, Bank Muamalat Malaysia Berhad classified the project as an abandoned project, the plaintiffs said. 

They are seeking specific damages totalling RM3.9mil and general damages of RM10.1mil. – Bernama
