To be prosecuted or held liable for the penalty. The defendant claimed that the second defendant told the plaintiff that it would be useful to use the building is just a foregone, it is a right to call for a penalty.

   The defendant was awarded the 14th and 15th installments, both at the construction period has ended and the plaintiff to build the 16th installment, which is the last period. It shows that the defendant does not consider the contract period is important. Both have a defendant to the plaintiff to do the contract. It is a circumstance that indicates that the contract relating to the delivery of the work has not been completed under this contract.
