KUALA LUMPUR — July 13, 2017: Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has seized 550 housing units leased under the People’s Housing Project (PPR) and Public Housing (PA) for breach of conditions.
The move since January is to ensure that the units were are not misused by tenants.
“The high demand for housing has prompted some tenants to exploit the situation by leasing units to third parties. They took advantage of other people’s hardship.
“We will not compromise and will revoke their lease agreements immediately. This way, we can give the units to the 80,000 poor on the waiting list,” Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said after DBKL’s corruption free pledge with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) here today.
MACC Chief Commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad said some 223 agencies nationwide have joined the pledge. — Bernama
