“We’ve been waiting too long to go home. Some of the elderly residents have passed away while waiting for their new homes and we hope the city government will speed up the construction,” the households said in a joint statement.

The Wangs’ lawyer, Chan Shun-kuei (詹順貴), said the family respected the court ruling, but accused the city government of seeking to mislead the court.

There are several legal cases pending between the Wangs and the construction firm, and the family will continue to strive for its rights, he said.
