House Owners “Disappeared” after Nail House Demolished

The "most incredible nail house in history" being struck down

Wu Ping and Yang Wu seem to have disappeared along with their nail house, which was finally struck down on Monday night after the couple reached an agreement with real estate developers.

They accepted an offer of a same-size property at a different location as the exchange for the nail house, plus 900,000 yuan ($112,500) of compensation for their business loss due to the redevelopment construction.

Journalists, however, were not able to reach the couple for comments on the finale of their long and widely publicized fight for their property. Ms. Wu Ping, who was eager to talk to journalists in the past couple of weeks, turned off her cellphone, an action so unusual for the media-appealing lady that some journalists were concerned about her personal freedom. An official from Jiulongpo District Court, which facilitated the final agreement, assured the press that the couple “is absolutely free,” but simply too tired to talk to journalists.

Ms. Wu Ping and the developers resumed negotiation on March 25, but again refused to see each after failing to reach any agreement on the compensation plan. The breakthrough came along after Wu Ping met with the Party Secretary, the top leader, of Jiulongpo District on March 28. The two had a three-hour talk and after that, “Wu Ping’s attitude changed significantly,” officials briefed the press on Tuesday.

Right after an agreement was signed on Monday, Yang Wu left the nail house by himself, along with the national flag and the banner showing right-defending slogans.

In just a few hours, the famous nail house, which has been watched by the entire world and seen by many as the symbol of Chinese citizens’ resolution to fight for their property right, collapsed to the ground. The time was 10:36 pm.

Whatever the Party Secretary said, it apparently worked. It made a mockery of all those court orders. Talk about Party above the law.
