KUALA LUMPUR: A 70-year-old landlord was slapped with a RM695,000 fine by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) after his tenant was suspected of tampering with the electricity meter for bitcoin mining activities.

Wu Tuan Chiang said he rented his shoplot at Bandar Puteri Puchong to an “IT system solution company” for RM1,600 a month in May 2019.

After receiving the notice from TNB, he found that his shoplot had been vacated since December 2020 and he had not been able to trace the tenant.

Wu was among 10 building owners who took their case to MCA’s Public Services and Complaints Department head Michael Chong.

At a press conference here today, Chong said the 10 owners had jointly accumulated electricity fines totalling a whopping RM1,758,000 following the misuse of their properties.

He appealed to TNB to look into the complaints of these “small-time’ property owners.
