Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Taipei City councilors yesterday called for the immediate demolition of the Taipei Dome.
City Councilor Wang Chih-ping (汪志冰) said that allowing contractor Farglory Group (遠雄集團) more time to complete the structure after the passage of the June 15 contract deadline would mean “throwing the game” in favor of the company.
In response to KMT councilors’ demands for details about the city’s endgame on the Dome, Taipei Deputy Mayor Teng Chia-chi (鄧家基) said that the city has four options: giving Farglory additional time, ordering lenders to take over the structure, temporarily suspending parts of the firm’s contract or ending the contract.
When asked about the legal grounds to end the contract, Taipei Department of Legal Affairs Commissioner Yang Fang-ling (楊芳玲) cited articles in the contract allowing it to be dissolved in the event of serious occurrences affecting its implementation. [FULL STORY]
