This dilapidated illegal building in Sabindo commercial area is an eye sore of the tourists. It bring bad impression to North Borneo Hotel as this illegal building was built right in front the hotel
Several years ago there was already a court decision for the two illegal buildings in town to be torn down but there is a slight problem with the former building owner.
