Court awards Johor utility firm RM100,000 damages over water pollution claim

THE Court of Appeal has ordered two landfill operators to pay damages of RM100,000 to water supply company SAJ Ranhill Sdn Bhd for negligence.

A three-member bench, comprising judges Has Zanah Mehat, Che Mohd Ruzima Ghazali and See Mee Chun, made the order after allowing an appeal by SAJ Ranhill, which operates a water treatment plant in Simpang Renggam, Kluang, Johor, to set aside a High Court’s dismissal of its claim in 2021.
