New building rule changes approved in Bahrain
Manama, June 25, 2014
Parliament has approved Shura Council's amendments to a new building regulation law that gives Bahrain's municipalities the power to demolish buildings in violation of the regulations without a court order.
Higher fines can also be imposed under the law, which has been referred to His Majesty King Hamad for ratification, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
MPs also approved plans to sign an aviation convention with Pakistan yesterday and voted in favour of Shura's amendments to their plans to scrap Manama Municipal Council. - TradeArabia News Service
