All eyes on apartment on the edge of collapse


KUALA LUMPUR: The authorities are keeping a close eye on the situation at Seri Duta 1 apartment.

City police chief Comm Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim, when contacted, said after the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) evacuated 34 households there last week, they have been monitoring the situation closely.

“As of now, contractors are performing works to strengthen the foundation. Monitoring works are conducted by DBKL daily to survey water and land movement.

“Up till now, no land movement has been detected,” he said.

Comm Azmi said the area was deemed unsafe by the Public Works Department.

In a Facebook post on Dec 22, Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim said all 34 families were evacuated from the area after the landslides.
