Guarantee Letter from DBKL guarantees unknown


Lim and aggrieved Jinjang Selatan Tambahan residents


Surat Janji from DBKL

Two weeks ago, 14 out of 17 former Temporally Occupying Licensed (TOL) houses at Jinjang Selatan Tambahan received each a guarantee letter (surat jaminan) cum final eviction notice from DBKL informing them to vacate the area latest by Monday, 13.4.2009 in order for a road project. The letter did not mention the term of guarantee. Those TOL house owners have stayed there for over 40 years and have renewed their TOL every year until 5 years ago when DBKL refused to accept their renewal fees.
On Monday itself I received a reply from DBKL to my enquiry into the details of the guarantee letter and the answer is DBKL and one private company (a developer?) are yet to determine what to reward (ganjaran) the house owners. That means DBKL demands the owners to vacate their houses latest by Monday in exchange of an unknown or maybe nothing at all. Who would be that moron to accept such guarantee letter?

Lim Lip Eng
