Members of the Taipei Dome Sub-Contractors Self Help Association
yesterday presented a petition to the Control Yuan calling for an investigation into the Taipei City Government’s decision to halt construction of the Taipei Dome.
After presenting the petition, association head Sam Hsu (許志霖) called on the Taipei City Government to publicize the list of construction plan violations on which its order is based, allowing the sub-contractors to move toward resuming construction by addressing the violations.
The legal basis for the construction halt is unclear because in normal circumstances planning violations are only subject to a NT$9,000 fine per violation, payable after construction is completed, he said. [FULL STORY]
