KUALA LUMPUR: Residents of Pinggir Zaaba in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, will be taking legal action against Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp) on the grounds that it has misled them into believing that residents will be compensated for the acquisition of their houses for the MRT project.
Resident Norliza Kamaruddin said a letter of intent had been hand-delivered to MRT Corp by their appointed counsel on Aug 16.
“We have been taken for a ride by MRT Corp as we were made to believe that they will compensate us accordingly for the acquisition of our houses.
