A SMALL group of elderly tenants of the Kowloon Walled City camping out at a public housing estate nearby in protest against the Government's compensation package were yesterday ordered to leave. At a chambers hearing, Master Woolley gave the 21 tenants until January 8 to leave the Tung Tau Housing Estate rest garden where they have been camping since July last year. They have been offered compensation for their shops of between $6 million for 700 square feet to $276,000 for 400 square feet. This works out at between $1,000 and $7,000 per square foot. The tenants claim that shop space in the area near the Walled City costs between $12,000 and $22,000 per square foot. ''The Government has robbed us of our shops. We will not move out until we get reasonable compensation and resettlement,'' said Cheng Shing-sze, chairman of the Kowloon Walled City representatives. Mr Cheng operated a herbal shop there for many years. He has rejected the offer of $391,000 compensation for his 410 square foot shop space. He claims that the payment would not buy a shop of a similar size. He rejected government claims that they were trespassing, adding that they had no choice as they had nowhere else to sleep. Mr Cheng said he had asked Master Woolley to offer them fairer compensation and was told the court was sympathetic but did not have the jurisdiction to make such an award. He stressed that his group was willing to leave the rest garden if their request was dealt with satisfactorily. Asked if the group would leave as ordered, Mr Cheng said: ''We will wait and see what happens on the day.'' According to Lee Chu-yin, senior housing manager of the Housing Authority, 15 of the 21 tenants had been resettled on public housing estates. Suitable places were also offered to three others but they rejected them. Mr Lee, who was heckled by the tenants outside the Supreme Court, said he hoped the people would respect the court ruling and move out. Police were on standby as the tenants shouted abuse and waved their fists at Mr Lee.
