I just want to see if we can get a clearer picture of what has happened?
How are they holding the mall to ransom, as you put it?
If they have plots inside the mall, then presumably you must have given them those plots in the first place?
Or if they were unplotted areas, then surely they have every right to plot them if they wish?
Are you claiming it’s being held ransom because you want the areas they have plotted, and they have asked for something in return for giving you the plots?
What bigger claim do you have to the plots than anyone else?
I’m nor condoning the behaviour at all, but I also would not condone taking plots off someone and giving them to someone else, just because it’s next to their build.
I guess if there is threats of blocking etc, then maybe there is a case, but if they are simply asking for some compensation in exchange for their plots that you want, I don’t see how that is ‘against the rules’, so to speak.
I think, as with all these cases, not know all sides and details does not allow for any bystander to make a proper judgement.
