They said they had been operating in front of the Sri Kota building for many years, but authorities had been trying to remove the stalls over the past decade.

The latest eviction notice was issued by the Land Office on Aug 29.When Kuala Lumpur City Hall officers tried to remove the stalls recently, Bukit Bintang MP Fong Kui Lun intervened and the small tents used by the traders were taken away.

“There are many small traders operating stalls in Brickfields with business licences,” said one trader identified as Balasingam.
