A Shah Alam resident has filed an application for a judicial review to challenge the decisions of the state government and menteri besar to demolish the Shah Alam stadium and build a smaller one.
Ahmad Mua’Adzam Shah Ya’akob, 48, filed the application at the Shah Alam High Court yesterday through Messr Kamarudin & Partners, naming the Shah Alam mayor, Selangor menteri besar and Selangor government as the first to third respondents.
Ahmad Mua’Adzam is seeking a certiorari order to cancel the decision of the third respondent on July 16 and another decision by the second respondent on Sept 30 to demolish the Shah Alam stadium, build a smaller stadium and develop the surrounding land.
He is also seeking a mandamus order that the respondents follow the regulations according to the Town and Country Planning Act 1976 before any decision is made regarding the stadium, especially in the issuance of public notice and inviting stakeholders, particularly nearby landowners, to give their input – either agree or disagree with the proposal.
Ahmad Mua’Adzam is also seeking a court order for the decision of the state government to be suspended until the court decides.
