Osmeña mulls charges vs Dino over alleged unsafe condo

0 28

Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña mulls filing of a complaint against Allan Dino, the brother of Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Dino, over the alleged negligence on a four-story condominium.

Osmeña said that the condominium was not strong enough and the contractor allegedly failed to follow procedures such as boring test to check if the foundation was strong enough. Reports said that Allan was affiliated to the contractor of the building which is now being used as dormitory.

Osmeña, however, said that they are not in a hurry to file charges against Allan as they are still gathering necessary documents needed in filing charges.

Cebu City Hillyland Dormitory administrator Kevin Crister Paz said more than 400 city scholars were relocated elsewhere after the Department of Engineering and Public Works found one sinkhole at the area where the condominium is located.

The Mines and Geosciences Bureau-7 recommended to close the dormitory for being unsafe and the area was cordoned off and classified as “danger zone.”
