Land Management Minister Chea Sophara on Tuesday again warned of strict legal actions against building owners and construction professionals who flouted regulations and laws, pointing to the recently-passed Law on Construction.
In a workshop to disseminate the Law on Construction, Chea Sophara said the ministry would use the law’s punitive articles to take legal action against any building owners and construction professionals who failed to abide by the law and construction regulations.
“Before we don’t have a law, but now we have,” he said. “And believe me I will implement it. If we don’t have a law, I don’t know what to do. They refused to listen to us despite our pleas.”
