By NICHOLAS CHENG
KUALA LUMPUR: Businesses in the 13 shoplots in Bukit Setiawangsa, which were forced to evacuate after a retaining wall nearby collapsed, can put forward the losses incurred by them for review, said Setiawangsa MP Datuk Seri Zulhasnan Rafique.
Speaking to reporters after a closed-door meeting between the shoplot owners and the developer I&P Group Sdn Bhd, Zulhasnan said the shopkeepers were told to compile a brief of their company's information including rental fees and number of workers.
"They can also include their losses which they wish to claim.
“It will be included in a memorandum which will be submitted to Cabinet meeting soon," Zulhasnan said Thursday.
He clarified that their claims would be considered by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and the Federal Territories Ministry and not to the developer I&P Sdn Bhd.
"Depending on the nature of their business, the cost incurred due to natural disaster will be considered," he said.
