“When I watched it collapse, I saw that it started to collapse from the ground floor. I saw that there were balcony closures on the building, which were made not in accordance with the project and brought additional loads. These can be dangerous. There are serious construction errors. The reason for the demolition is that the building was damaged in the 1999 and 2005 earthquakes, but the necessary actions were not taken. I don’t think I’m guilty.“
“I DON’T KNOW HOW THEY DID THE CONSTRUCTION”
Explaining that the building was built 27 years ago, that they had no information about the fault line at that time, and that the earthquake code was very different, TP continued his defense as follows:
“I did not check the implementation of the project I did, and no such request came. There was a responsible friend called Science Responsible. We signed the project, I don’t know how they did the construction. According to the laws of that period, the technical responsible person is responsible. I’ve never been to construction, I don’t know the contractor. I didn’t even know that a building permit was obtained. I think the Chamber of Civil Engineers is also responsible.“
