Shenzhen Nail House

The owner of the well publicised Shenzhen Nail House, Cai Zhuxiang, has finally received the payment as requested. A reported amount of between 10 million and 20 million yuan (US$1.3 million to US$2.7 million) has been paid for that piece of land being occupied by Cai's building by Kingkey Group, the developer for that piece of land. Was it a pure business transaction or ransom against the developer by the land owner? Earlier, lower compensation was rejected and the owner held on to their property while their other neighbours had sold off their interests. Patience pays? Or ransom pays?

Right after the transaction has been publicised, the tax collector from the Luohu district office called up to demand for tax payment for the sum gained. Not only that, extortion phone calls came in asking the owner to withdraw the money from the bank. What a country!

Is China then the new land of opportunities? It's just a bit iffy as to what kind of 'opportunities' are available...

Have a great day!
