TAIPEI, Taiwan — Chang Chuan-chin (張權嶔) filed a new lawsuit against Commissioner
Lin Jou Min (林洲民) of the Taipei City Department of Urban Development on Thursday after SWJ Construction finished demolishing his house per the department’s orders.
This lawsuit is the newest development in what started as an accidental, partial demolition of Chang’s house earlier on March 3, when the construction company was attempting to comply with an urban renewal plan for Chang’an West Road.
When officials realized their mistake, the demolition was put on hold, leaving the house partially torn down.
The Department of Urban Development subsequently assessed the partially demolished house as being a danger to the public, signing the papers for its demolition on Wednesday. SWJ finished the demolition on Thursday. [FULL STORY]
