  • Its the pandemic poison of corruption - and the effects of the mafia - that makes many Westerners frightened of setting up business there.
    I knew a British CEO of a tool manufacturer, who in the 1990s had set up business there. Within a week of starting, mafia thugs burst into his office with machine guns and demanded a quarter of his gross turnover. He refused and got beaten up to within an inch of his life.

  • Maybe one of the other LL'ers will know what is going on.
    Could just be an old building that some people want to save.
    They do that crap here also.
    Old and taking up space but some people cry that it is heritage.
    Our down town is full of that.
    Old falling down buildings that groups piss and moan evrytime they are scheduled to be taken down.

  • Obviously something is wrong if you have civilians trying to stop the demolition & not giving up.

    • @GoryGory That helped answered the questions I had.

      In a nutshell: What we have here is comparable to demolishing the U.S. Capitol Building, The Tower of London, The Sydney Opera House by people out for a quick buck.

      Not that the first one happening with the current tenants inside, while it's being done, wouldn't offset the loss

  • I'd like to know how the OP knows this demolition was truly illegal. I don't get why they were still trying to stop them though when there was virtually nothing left. When your house is rubble the game is sort of already over...

      I suspect that money are the issue. Obviously the building is on some valued location and this dudes maybe didn't got the wanted monetary compensation monetary.No other explanation.
