PETALING JAYA: A developer has slammed the allegations linking it to the early morning attack at the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple as “malicious lies”.
In a statement, One City Development Bhd stated that the allegations that it had orchestrated the incident were malicious lies, and that the company condemned both acts of violence and insinuations that it would resort to “such despicable acts”.
One City said it was committed to adhering to the rule of law in addressing the temple, which is sitting on its land.
The developer said it was not advantageous to create unnecessary tension on its own land, stating this would defeat the purpose of going through the lengthy legal process and asking for the authorities’ help in facilitating the temple’s peaceful relocation.
One City said that those who had been following the Seafield temple issue were aware that the developer had postponed carrying out its writ of possession many times, and had tried its level best to ensure peace was maintained during the execution process.
The developer said it would pursue legal action against defamatory statements made against it.
