I confirm this.

Apparently you can remove/delete a contact by pressing the right-button of your mouse and press "Delete".

I don’t have a right-click option available as well. So I don’t have to have any option to remove a contact at all.

You have to right-click on the detail view (on the right, not the list item on the left) to open the context menu that shows the "delete" option.

The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.

I'm using Gnome 3.4 and I solved simply reading more carefully the guide:
http://library.gnome.org/users/gnome-help/stable/contacts-add-remove.html
In particular, you must click on the top of the window, near the name of the contact.
Nevertheless, I think that this process is not particularly intuitive.
