Asked about the demolishment costs, Oprescu said despite the fact that the evaluation was not yet completed, the costs could go around EUR 4 million.

"We know there is a Court’s final and irrevocable sentence. There should be issued a decision of demolishment by the general mayor, and after that, if those who constructed wouldn’t comply, a summons should be issued. ", Oprescu said.

According to the general mayor there wasn’t yet received any request for the issue of the demolishment disposition by the City Hall.
