31 years ago, a promise was made to home purchasers in Subang Jaya that they will be co-owners of the Subang Ria Park.
The Consumer Association of Subang Jaya and Shah Alam claimed that what happened after that is a classic case of administrative oversight, negligence, incompetence, greed, corruption and abuse of law.
The residents discovered in 2002 that the title to the Park had been transferred to the developer years ago.
The residents had made appeals to various politicians including the Selangor Sultan, the Prime Minister, the Menteri Besar, Member of Parliament and State Assemblyman.
Recently the owners, Sime Darby Properties have gone online to promote their development plans for the Park.
The stage is set for some bitter confrontation unless the Pakatan State Government for Selangor steps in to gazzete the 30 ha Park as a green lung for the people of Subang Jaya.
