MASS Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp) says the stripping and dismantling of fixtures that have taken place in the Ampang Park Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur, are not its doing.

The company has lodged a police report on the matter.

MRT Corp Strategic Communications and Stakeholder Relations director Datuk Najmuddin Abdullah said the land acquisition process of the area for the construction of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) Line was yet to be completed.

“As the land acquisition process is still ongoing, MRT Corp does not have ownership over Ampang Park,” he said, adding that the company did not have control over what takes place inside the building,” he said.

However, Najmuddin explained that the land acquisition process had already determined the quantum of compensation to the owners, which included all fittings and fixtures inside the building.

“MRT Corp lodged a police report on Jan 3 because we believe that these activities should not be taking place. 

“We are also concerned that it can endanger the public,” he said, urging the relevant authorities to take the necessary action to stop the activities.
