Jiang gets flak for housing rights comments

By Loa Iok-sin  /  Staff reporter

“Jiang said that protecting the right to housing does not extend to illegal residents, but then why were our legally owned houses torn down just because a construction firm wanted the land for an urban renewal project?” Wang said.

“The two cases prove that, as long as the government or a construction firm wants the land, your house could be taken from you, whether it’s legal or illegally owned,” he added.
