    HKR Kills shop Owner

    Sam Kwok owner of Fresh Fruit Juice shop was hounded by HKR to where he committed suicide over the last weekend. The HKR people pushed Sam to upgrade his business until he took his own life. Now, HKR will push all businesses to change or move with their new planning development for the Plaza and community. Since no media are allowed into DB, the truth will never come out.

    You mean journalists are forbidden from living in or visiting DB?

    That his dealings with HKR caused him to kill himself. The shop shut down for a few days for the funeral and when they reopened Sam's family felt the need to refute the (mostly Facebook and DBForum) rumours that HKR was to blame because they had tried to somehow force him out so they could rent to someone else who would pay more. They posted a letter to residents on their front door, the text of which read:

    To: Residents of Discovery Bay

    Our Dear Customers,

    Many thanks for all your messages, love and care for our beloved Sam.

    There are rumours on Facebook which are wholly unfounded and untrue. We respectfully ask all our supporters to please ignore those untrue Facebook messages. We feel sorry for any inconvenience caused to Hong Kong Resort Limited. This is not Sam's or our intention. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Hong Kong Resort Limited and its employees for all the support given to us throughout the years.

    We are arranging for Sam's funeral with a very heavy heart. This shop will be closed for a few days. Thank you for your understanding and support.

    Sam's Family
