In a landmark case, the Federal Court today recorded a settlement between them and the federal government which recognised the right of the Orang Asli to their native customary land in Bukit Tampoi, Dengkil.
Their 38-acre land was taken to build a highway to the KLIA in Sepang.
The apex court allowed the settlement to be recorded today after the federal and the Selangor governments agreed to pay the compensation to Sagong Tasi.
Sagong, 78, and six others of the Temuan tribe took the federal government, the Selangor government, the Malaysian Highway Authority and contractor United Engineers Malaysia Bhd (UEM) to court over the matter.
The deadlock was ended on April 22 last year after the Selangor government pulled out from challenging the suit.
