13 May, in the Drum Terrace Square (鼓楼广场) at
the CBD of Kaifeng,
Henan Province, a sobbing Guo Man is helping her child searching
for his text books and school works trashed
by a property developer in the early morning.
“When a group of men broke into our home at
5am, my mother, my child and I were still asleep. They dragged
us out of the building, and pulled down the house with a
bulldozer. Our computer, refrigerator, bank card and other
household items, including my son’s shoes, are all buried
in rubble, and he had to go to school barefoot,” narrated
Guo when interviewed by a journalist that afternoon.
Later it is found that the property
developer with his company called Wensheng (文盛房地产开发公司)
has demolished the wrong building. The city authority reportedly
told Guo that it would make the developer to apologize
and pay for her lose for the mistake of identifying the
wrong property to demolish.
Does it mean if a deal to demolish a building
is made between the authority and developers, the developers
will be entitled to break into a private household and throw
the rightful residents out and demolish their home and trash
their belongings without their knowledge or consent?
