Another case in the same province involved illegal dismantling of some commercial and civil residence sites which could date back to the late Qing Dynasty. ' The third case was about dismantling of a site in Hubei where a negotiation between the Communist Party of China and Kuomintang took place.

The administration said in a statement that people responsible for the violations have either been held for further investigation or received due punishments.
