Over MOP12 mln spent on temporary works at Sin Fong Garden


The city’s Public Prosecutor’s Office (MP) disclosed that some MOP12.8 million has been spent on the temporary and monitoring works at Sin Fong Garden, adding that the total cost is still currently being calculated.
In response to public opinion regarding the slow progress to resolve the situation, the MP posted a press release reporting that the evaluation report made by the three appointed experts had already been submitted to the Court.
In 2012, at least 140 homes in the Sin Fong Garden residential building in Patane were evacuated after one of its supporting pillars collapsed, threatening the whole structure. The residences have been sealed off ever since.
In October 2015, the MP filed a civil action with the Court of First Instance against four construction companies related to the Sin Fong Garden incident.
The lawsuit aims to retrieve the amount used by the developers in question.
