Madbouly gives Maspero residents an ultimatum to relocate

Housing Minister Mostafa Madbouly issued yesterday an ultimatum to Maspero Triangle residents who have refused to relocate from their homes, causing delays in a redevelopment plan for the area, Al Masry Al Youm reports. Madbouly told the residents during a meeting yesterday that this is their “last chance” to either agree to permanently relocate to 6 October City or temporarily move out of the area until work is complete. Those who fail to do either will be evicted from their homes and will receive monetary compensation from the government, according to the minister. The Informal Settlement Development Fund had allocated EGP 1.3 bn last year to compensate the residents.
