Video script: It is a normal Tuesday morning for most people in Kuala Lumpur. However it is not the same for 34 families which is still occupying the Kg Kerinchi flats.
The eleven blocks of four-storey flats have been acquired by the Government under the Land Acquisition Act 1960. April 3 is the final day for them to vacate their homes or they have to face forced eviction.
On the other side, another group claiming to represent the 433 families who have vacated the flats, hurled abuses to the remaining residents. The commotion eventually ended up in a brawl.
The riot squad has to step in to contain the situation.
With the intervention of Lembah Pantai MP, Nurul Izzah Anwar and PERMAS’s Tan Jo Hann, the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur agreed to extend the eviction and demolition deadline by another seven days.
