Takiyuddin: Govt looking at 'win-win solution' over termination of KVDT2 contract



KUALA LUMPUR: The government is looking at an out-of-court "win-win solution" related to the three civil suits filed against it for terminating the Klang Valley Double Tracking Phase 2 (KVDT2) contract.

According to Minister in Prime Minister's Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan, the decision was made during last week's cabinet meeting.

"On this matter, it is not only this civil case but for any civil case faced by the government, it is the government's practice to always be open to negotiating an amicable out-of-court settlement.

"Similarly, in this case, the cabinet last Friday said the companies and the Transport Ministry should try and reach an agreement for a win-win solution," Takiyuddin told the Dewan Rakyat this morning.


He was responding to former transport minister Anthony Loke (Pakatan Harapan-Seremban) who asked if the government is ready to renegotiate the KVDT2 project.

Dhaya Maju Infrastructure (Asia) Sdn Bhd (DMIA) and its partner Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (LTAT) (DMIA-LTAT) had filed the suits against the government over the termination of the contract.

Last month, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong said the KVDT2 project will proceed as planned and that the cabinet has agreed that it is best to reopen the tender for the project.
