The High Courtin Johor Baru granted leave to proceed with a mandamus hearing to ascertain the value of a plot of land acquired from the orang asli 26 years ago.
A mandamus order is a judicial order compelling a lower court or person to perform a public or statutory duty.
Justice See Mee Chun made the ruling in chambers after the orang asli, through their lawyer Tan Poh Lai, filed a mandamus application to get the Johor Baru Land and Mines Department to act in accordance with the Land Acquisition Act 1960.
The department is also supposed to pay the people appropriate compensation for the land acquisition.
No date has been fixed for the hearing.
