The fenced MIDROC land in Piassa, which had been fenced without any construction was finally demolished by the Addis Ababa Land Management Bureau last Wednesday.
A month ago the three hectare fenced plot was taken from MIDROC which was owned by the billionaire Sheikh Mohammed Hussein al-Amoudi who is currently under custody in Saudi Arabia .
The Piassa land which was given to MIDROC 20 years ago was initially going to be used to build a 40 floor building but MIDROC finally decided to build a G+ 4 twin building in the place. MIDROC raised its concern that they are not responsible for any damage occurring in the non-fenced, demolished area.
