Injunction on EGM over Amcorp Trade Centre
22/10/2008 The Star

OWNERS and tenants of the Amcorp Trade Centre who had been frustrated with their present Joint Management Committee (JMC) were prevented from holding an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) here recently by a court injunction.

This was despite the fact that the owners and tenants had received a notice from Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) Commissioner of Buildings Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman to hold the EGM.

The injunction, applied for by Amcorp Trade Centre’s Joint Management Body (JMB) on Friday, stated that they wanted a court review on MBPJ’s decision to have the EGM.

Amcorp Trade Centre Owners and Tenants Association (Atcota) members in a gathering said that the EGM was initially called to pass a motion of no confidence in the current JMC and to reelect new JMC members as well as appoint a new property manager.

In an open letter to all unit owners, the association questioned the current JMC on several outstanding issues.

A resident who only wanted to be known as Lee, claimed that since 1997, the JMC had lost about RM10mil in managing the place.

“If the people who run your residential building lose RM10mil in ten years, as a house owner, would you still want them to continue running the place?” he asked.

Former JMC member Gregory Lim, in a letter which was made available to the press, said he was “frustrated by the slow pace of action and reform by the JMC”.

In his resignation letter as JMC member dated Sept 9, 2008, to committee chairman Khamis Mohd Yassin, he also said he was concerned by the hefty management fees charged by the managing agent.
