HA NOI (VNS) — Authorities in Ha Noi’s Ba Dinh District yesterday sent forces to demolish the 8B Le Truc building’s illegally constructed floors after a report criticised slow demolition work from the building’s developer.
Dozens of workers using concrete demolition machines started to destroy the 19th floor of the building under the observation of representatives from administration, local construction inspectorate of Dien Bien Ward and the developer.
Tran Manh Quan, Chairman of People’s Committee of Dien Bien Ward where the building is located, said the demolition was undertaken after a decision by the Ba Dinh District People’s Committee in early January 2016 to implement punishment for violations in the construction process.
The ward asked the building’s developer, Le Truc Garment Joint Stocks Company, to co-operate with demolition forces, said Quan.
It also asked the developer to pay for all demolition costs, he added. — VNS
