The Desa Damansara condominium, where the alleged sodomy took place, is home to the rich and famous in Kuala Lumpur, including a former top banker and an ex-minister. Desa Damansara, located in the exclusive and quiet area of Damansara Heights, has come under the microscope since Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan alleged that he was sodomised by PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in one of the units there.
Mohd Saiful, in a police report lodged on Saturday, alleged the sodomy took place at Desa Damansara on Thursday. Police carried out a search in the condominium unit on Monday. From the few “For sale” ads placed, a condominium unit of about 1,000 sq ft is quoted at more than RM600,000, and a low-rise unit with four rooms measuring about 2,000 sq ft at RM1.5mil. Rental for a fully-furnished two-bedroom unit is about RM4,000 a month.
Desa Damansara was built in two phases. The first was completed about 16 years ago while the second phase was completed about five years ago. Information on the condominiums is listed on http://www.kondoservis.com/article.cfm?id=29.
The condominium is managed by Kondoservis Sdn Bhd, established some 28 years ago under IGB Corporation Bhd. It provides management services for all condominium projects developed by Tan & Tan Developments, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of IGB Corp. The first phase is designed with country-resort living in mind and has one tower block and nine low-rise buildings with 114 units.
“Taking advantage of the natural terrain, the unique landscape blends ingeniously with the contour, with roads and walkways spiralling gracefully within the compound, linking the apartment blocks as well as the various facilities,” the website states. The second phase comprises two tower blocks of 132 apartments and has a “state-of-the-art” swimming pool with a waterfall. It also boasts tennis courts, a fully-equipped gym room and a “leisure garden” on the rooftop. “Offering a secure, guarded community of cool, refreshing lifestyle, Desa Damansara is truly an indulgence of nature’s best,” the website says. - The STaR ONLiNe
