TNB wins bid to set aside RM4 million in damages over power cut

TENAGA Nasional Bhd (TNB) has won its appeal to set aside a High Court order for it to pay RM4 million in damages to a steel manufacturing company for alleged negligence over electricity supply disruptions to its factory.

A panel justices Abdul Karim Abdul Jalil, Abu Bakar Jais and M. Gunalan allowed TNB’s appeal after ruling the power company cannot be held liable for Southern Steel Bhd’s (SSB) claim.
