KUALA LUMPUR: Sime Darby Plantation Bhd has opposed the compulsory acquisition of 185.5 acres of land in Merlimau, Melaka by the state authorities and also GI A Resources Sdn Bhd.

Sime Plantation said on Tuesday that it has commenced a judicial review against the Melaka Land and Mines Department, Jasin Land Office, the State Government and also GI A Resources Sdn Bhd.

“The company is seeking, among others, the orders of certiorari and mandamus to nullify the compulsory acquisition, and declaratory relief that the Land Acquisition Act 1960 cannot be abused to compulsorily acquire land belonging to the company for the benefit of a foreign owned company, GI A Resources Sdn Bhd,” it said in a filing with Bursa Malaysia.

Sime Plantation said it was advised by its solicitors that it has strong grounds for this action to protect its assets.
