THERE have been a number of reports in the press regarding the access road
to Paramount View condominium in Seksyen 22, Taman Aman, Petaling Jaya,
Selangor. A handful of residents near the condominium site have protested;
the assemblyman and MP have commented on the issue, Petaling Jaya City
Council (MBPJ) has issued a stop-work order on the project, and the
developer has also come out to defend itself.

obligations to the buyers.
We also call on Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San, Petaling Utara MP
Tony Pua and Selangor state executive councillor Ronnie Liu to consider
the plight of the buyers in their deliberation on this matter.
