No forced evictions for Olympic Games: FM spokeswoman
font size    

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said on Tuesday all Beijing residents who have moved house because of Olympic site construction have been supported in their change of residence and none of them had been forced to move out of the capital city.

Jiang made the remarks in reply to a report released by a Geneva-based center on Housing Rights and Evictions that said some 1.5 million people will have been displaced by the time the Beijing Games are held in 2008.

"The report is sheer groundless," Jiang told a regular press conference.

Nine major venues are being built for the Beijing Olympic Games and this has involved the resettlement of 6,037 households since 2002, Jiang said.

All of them received monetary compensation and resettlement support, and no household was forced to move out of Beijing, Jiang added.
