The Federal Territories Ministry will review the deal for a high-rise development at Taman Rimba Kiara, The Malaysian Insight reported its minister Khalid Samad (pictured) saying today.

“We will have to check and see if there is anything fishy or dubious in the contract.

“Then we will see what action can be taken,” he said after a meeting with Kuala Lumpur MPs in PutrajayaThe Malaysian Insight reported today.

The Star reported Khalid saying that he was confident that action could be taken as the project was still in its early stages.

The project involves the development of eight blocks of 42- and 52-storey high-end serviced apartments and a 30-storey block of affordable homes.

Local residents have formed The Save Taman Rimba Kiara Group to voice their opposition to the proposed development, which was approved last November.
