Ohrid city authorities began to demolish a house that was unlawfully being built in the north-eastern part of the city, allegedly by a company owned by notorious local DUI party official Nefi Useini.

The city was called out for its inability to tackle unlawful construction, including a downtown restaurant and an industrial facility built by Useini, who once attacked municipal inspectors who came to stop his work. Ohrid was threatened by UNESCO that it will lose its status as protected world heritage site unless an end is put to the unchecked construction in the old city and the lake-side areas. It’s estimated that about 400 homes, hotels and other commercial rea-estate are on the municipal black list.
