Court of Appeal sets aside contempt award against Tenaga

KUALA LUMPUR: The Court of Appeal has set aside an order made by the Johor Bahru High Court against Tenaga Nasional Bhd last year over the contempt proceedings filed by Bukit Lenang Development Sdn Bhd.

Tenaga said on Monday the Court of Appeal made the decision recently after Bukit Lenang informed the Court of Appeal that it did not wish to contest TNB’s appeals against the High Court’s order.

To recap, in 2014, Bukit Lenang filed a suit in the Johor Bahru High Court against TNB and two other parties for trespassing. 

TNB was found liable in contempt of court and fined RM100,000 while the surveyor that TNB had called as its witness was also found liable in contempt and reprimanded.

“In setting aside the orders of the High Court against TNB, the Court of Appeal also set aside the order that found the surveyor liable for contempt as well as the order that reprimanded him.

“Bukit Lenang also informed the Court of Appeal that it would not object to TNB’s application (to the High Court) for the refund of the RM100,000 fine,” the power giant said.
