In Mudanjiang City eight civilian houses were suddenly being demolished before the end of the year, for the rumors were the "Urban Housing Demolition Management Regulations" issued by the State Council will soon be repealed, and as a consequence, it will cause an increase in the amount of compensation to be paid to the evicted. That might be the reason why the local court ordered these evictions ignoring the cold weather condition and the ongoing legal case involving resident Zhang Lijin and others who sued the local government for coercive evictions.
