Contractor questioned over unsafe building demolition

Saturday, November 12, 2016

A contractor is being summoned for questioning over charges of failure to secure safety conditions at a site where an apartment building was demolished in Hawally Thursday afternoon. Footage went viral on social media showing a building being demolished with little safety measures taken around it, while people were running away for shelter.

Some vehicle owners even reported that their vehicles parked near the location were damaged by the demolition works. After seeing the video footage, Kuwait Municipality launched investigations and filed a case at the nearest police station, which was then referred to the Public Prosecution for further action, the municipality said in a statement.

The contractor faces a punishment of up to 7 years in jail and paying an up to KD 10,000 fine if found guilty of malpractice.
