Solidere’s "illegal expansion"

The Daily Star has a relatively lengthy piece about Solidere and some of its legal battles with former downtown property owners, most of whose property rights are now owned by Solidere. The issue is a fairly complicated one, and I don’t pretend to fully understand it, although this latest suit seems to have been sparked by Solidere’s decision to start expanding into Dubai whereas most of its work downtown remains unfinished.

In any case, the article is worth a read, and it’d be nice to see more of such substantive reporting being done by the Star. If anyone else has any links to more information about the Hariri empire and downtown property rights, I’d love to see it.
