Was in pain after reading this news earlier today:
I hope the good, ordinary people of Ulu Klang Recreation Club files an appeal.
How the learned judge found it perfectly okay for a local council to walk into a private club and reclaim the football field the club has maintained - not for a year or two but for generations - beats me!
The UKRC has not only kept the field green and lively, it has staved off greedy developers who wanted to "develop" the piece of land for years.
What's stopping the local government from developing a quarter or half of the field for condos?
What's stopping MPAJ from walking into other clubs and seizing their field and golf courses?
I hope the MPAJ sues the government and seek compensation for the millions of ringgit the club had spent taking care of a field that they had been made to think was theirs.
