The elderly woman who lodged the controversial court case against the Link listing said yesterday there was no mastermind behind her challenge to the privatisation of Housing Authority assets. Lo Siu-lang, 67, also denied knowing lawmaker Albert Cheng King-hon, who paid her court costs. Speaking before yesterday's Court of Appeal ruling against her application for a judicial review of the listing, she said she would continue to fight the case. 'I have no money ... but I definitely will appeal,' she said on Commercial Radio. She said she had yet to secure the funding needed to take the case to the Court of Final Appeal. But she was confident that she would be able to find the money. 'They cut short my time for appeals, I am not happy,' she added. Ms Lo, who lives in Kwai Shing West Estate, has not been home for the past few days because she fears media harassment. She stressed that she made the decision to take the Housing Authority to court. Mrs Lo, a social welfare recipient, said she decided to try to block the listing because she feared that goods sold at public housing malls would become more expensive if the malls were privatised. She said she was also unhappy about the Housing Authority's refusal last July to cut public housing rents and repay money 'overcharged' to tenants. The Court of First Instance ruled then that the authority had breached its statutory duty to review rent every three years under the Housing Ordinance. The ruling was later overturned by the Court of Appeal. The late timing of Ms Lo's application for a judicial review has been questioned by some academics and officials, but she said she only knew about the listing plans when she saw potential investors queuing outside banks. She said she sought the help of housing rights activist Cheung Man-wai, of the Alliance for Defending Grassroots Housing Rights, when she decided to challenge the listing. Ms Lo denied knowing Mr Cheng, the alleged mastermind of the case, who has already contributed about $550,000 in legal costs. Members of the alliance said Ms Lo regularly attended its forums on the rights of residents and the elderly. They also said she had volunteered to file the judicial review application. Members of the alliance were also responsible for launching the lawsuit against the Housing Authority regarding the rent increases at public housing estates.
