Lo Siu Lang, a public housing tenant, speaks at the news conference in Hong Kong December 17, 2004. The world's largest property trust listing is in disarray after a Hong Kong court said it could not force a 67-year-old pensioner living on $427 a month to proceed with a legal challenge to the $3 billion IPO. The Housing Authority, which has said it would scrap its IPO on Monday if legal issues are not resolved by then, wanted the Court of Final Appeal (CFA) to force the tenant to make any final legal challenge on Friday. Lo had failed in an initial challenge against the Link REIT and a subsequent appeal in the case that pits her against the Hong Kong government, half a million investors and top global financial firms.
