Amicable Settlement of Application for Judicial Review Pertaining to Sime Darby Plantation’s Land in Mukim Merlimau, Daerah Jasin, Melaka

Kuala Lumpur, 21 July 2020 – Sime Darby Plantation Berhad (SDP) is pleased to announce that an amicable settlement has been reached between the parties in relation to a Judicial Review application made by SDP against the Pengarah Tanah dan Galian Negeri Melaka, Pentadbir Tanah Daerah Jasin, the State Government of Melaka and GI A Resources Sdn Bhd.

  2. GI A Resources Sdn Bhd shall, within five (5) working days from the date of its solicitor’s receipt of a copy of the Government Gazette, file a notice of discontinuance to discontinue its appeal vide Court of Appeal Civil Appeal no. M-01(A)-317-06/2019; and 
  3. The settlement is considered complete upon the withdrawal of the compulsory acquisition of the Land and the full execution of each and every settlement term as contained in the consent order.
With this consent order, SDP is pleased to announce that its application for the Judicial Review has come to an end and the said land remains a property of SDP.
