Macau (MNA) – The Commission Against Corruption (CCAC) is investigating the plan to replace some 269 fire doors in the Ilha Verde economic housing estate, it was revealed at the sidelines of an awards ceremony by CCAC head Andre Chong in comments made to TDM Radio Chinese.
The replacement of the fire safety doors are said to cost up to MOP40 million (US$4.95 million) so far although the building in question is vacant.
“We have received numerous complaints from the public and several associations. As such we will open an investigation, for which the results will be made known to the public as soon as possible,” Mr Chong was quoted as saying.
The investigation will probe into whether the cost of the fire doors has been reasonably evaluated, as well as whether the government departments which have handled the process of installing the doors had followed relevant regulations.
