Property Developers Remove All Stairs to Woman’s Seventh Floor Flat

by | 11th, January 2011

IN a bid to evict Zhao Yanhong, 42, and her family from her seventh floor flat in Mianyang, south west China, the owners have removed all the stairs. And there’s no lift.

The owners want to build a factory on the site. The talk is of thugs making residents offers they cannot refuse. But Yanhong will noy budge. Says she:

“Then one day they turned up with machines and men and knocked out all the stairs to strand us here. They are just trying to bully us out of our home. The only way we can get out now is through ladders and climbing but it is very dangerous.”

The Mianyang Yachuan Property Company deny any wrong doing. And as stop gap, the law has ordered them to stop all building work for six months and restore a staircase.
