Evic­tion de­spite home­less risk

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - NATION / DIGEST -

The Land Tri­bunal re­fused to grant a re­prieve to a sin­gle mother, who might be­come home­less af­ter be­ing evicted from her Sham Shui Po flat. The sin­gle mother, liv­ing on the HK$3,900 wel­fare pay­out of her young son, said she was no­ti­fied of a rental raise from HK$2,650 to HK$3,950 when her lease ended in June. Though she said in court she would ac­cept the new rent, the owner of the flat re­fused to re­new the lease. The Land Tri­bunal ruled the woman must move out within three weeks ac­cord­ing to the law.
