Dozens of Shek Wu San Tsuen residents spent a chilly night sleeping rough next to their torn-down houses, claiming the Government had left them homeless. Three families have been promised resettlement in government housing but some complained they had been waiting months for a move. Sze Cho-wing - who had to be subdued by police after he threatened to blow up his home during Tuesday's violent confrontation with officers - said he was also considering filing a complaint with the Ombudsman. He and his wife spent Tuesday night camped outside their home. 'I keep demanding to know when my flat will be available. They told me it needs three months for repair,' Mr Sze said. 'We and some of our neighbours slept near the debris of our homes. It was worse than a war or an earthquake. It's such a mess and it was so cold last night.' A spokeswoman for the Housing Department said the repair of Mr Sze's flat in Tin Ping Estate had long been finished. Mr Sze was unhappy about the quality of the paint work on the door, she said. 'The painting was redone yesterday. He didn't appear to take possession of the flat.' Two families who were ruled ineligible for either public housing or interim housing, have been assigned interim units on compassionate grounds, she added. Chan Pik-chun, the owner of Chung Ying Furniture - which was handed a last-minute reprieve from the bull-dozers - said he was stepping up the removal, but may have to leave heavy machines because of the removal cost. Police were attacked with machetes, metal bars and petrol bombs. Fourteen people were hurt, including eight officers, in the day-long confrontation in Sheung Shui as residents unsuccessfully tried to stop their village being cleared for redevelopment. Tai Po police district commander Chief Superintendent To Ho-kee said police had not decided whether to charge any of the 14 people arrested following Tuesday's violence. Among the suspects were Democratic Party members Provisional Regional Councillor Wong Sing-chi, 42, and Sham Wing-kan, 45, an assistant to legislator Andrew Cheng Kar-foo. Both Mr Wong and Mr Sham are running in North District in the district council elections on November 28. Party vice-chairman Dr Yeung Sum said the Democrats always stuck to peaceful protests, but declined to comment on the arrests.
