Contractor fined SR750,000 for delaying project
RIYADH, 25th March 2001

    The Health Ministry has penalized a contractor who delayed the construction of a new building for the Badr General Hospital.

  The ministry’s action followed complaints from people of the region. The 150-bed hospital in Badr town, 150 km from Madinah, serves 27 villages in the Badr governorate.

  An official source in the ministry said the defaulting contractor was slapped a fine of SR750,000 and was removed from executing the project. The SR13 million contract was granted to another contractor who is expected to complete the construction in a short period.

  The original contractor diverted SR8 million he received from the ministry to other purposes ensuing a delay of eight years in completing the project, according to an informed source.

  Construction of the hospital building started in 1993 and the contractor frequently stopped work for periods ranging from two to six months.
