Utility giant Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) will have to compensate 100 people for releasing water from a dam in Cameron Highlands six years ago that took four lives and resulted in property losses.

This follows Tuesday’s Federal Court ruling dismissing TNB’s leave application to appeal against the Court of Appeal ruling last year.

Lawyer M Manoharan, who appeared for the plaintiffs, said a High Court deputy registrar would now assess the quantum of damages to be awarded to his clients.
