“We are highly confident that we will prevail in this construction litigation matter. Our client has suffered heavy losses and damages due to the trespass and encroachment, as well as acts of negligence and nuisance caused by the main contractor Sunway Construction. They should therefore be held liable to compensate our client” said Goik Kenzu.
