PUTRAJAYA, Nov 20

In early 2008, 108 owners / residents from Fraser Towers, Cameron Towers, Maxwell Towers, and Gasing Indah filed a court case in the High Court, Kuala Lumpur against DBKL and the developer Gasing Meridian Sdn. Bhd, to quash the Development Order (D.O.) granted by DBKL to Gasing Meridian to build 71 luxury homes on Bukit Gasing.

The first part of the case was to obtain “leave ” from the High Court to proceed with the main part of the case to establish why the D. O. should be set aside. After several hearings at the High Court over a period of about 18 months, the High Court in late 2009 granted the “leave” applied for.

DBKL and Gasing Meridian filed an appeal to the Court of Appeal, Putrajaya, against the Order for “leave” granted by the High Court. The Court of Appeal after hearing submissions from all parties, today dismissed the appeal of DBKL and Gasing Meridian, with costs.

Owners / Residents can rejoice with the decision as this is one step forward in our case to prevent the destruction of Bukit Gasing and to protect the lives and property of Owners / Residents living close to Bukit Gasing. Our sincere thanks to our lawyers Mr. R. Sivarasa and Mr Derek Fernandez and others who have been involved in the process and provided support.
