The so-called "compact AR Problem" reads:

Is every compact convex set in a metrizable topological vector space an absolute retract?

It is open according to the chapter by T. Banakh, R. Cauty and M. Zarichnyi in "Open Problems in Topology II" (2007) and according to a 2009 paper, which acknowledges discussions of its authors with Nguyen To Nhu.

Yet according to Sehie Park's 2004 survey and another 2009 paper it has been resolved affirmatively in a 8-page paper by Park published in some conference proceedings in 2004. (If you happen to solve "one of the most outstanding open problems in infinite dimensional topology", apparently you may have an urge to ignore top international journals and submit it to Antarctica Journal of Mathematics - especially if you happen to live in Antarctica.)

Given that Cauty and Nhu have been long active in the area and have obtained substantial results related to the problem, it would be strange if they missed a correct solution. But it is also strange that they didn't mention Park's paper (whatever they think of it).

So what is going on here?

(I must admit that so far I have mostly checked out just those sources that are freely accessible on the internet, but given that some confusion already exists in at least one of the two 2009 papers, I thought that even if I'm missing a trivial solution such as MathSciNet it is perhaps already legitimate to ask this question here, so as to make that trivial solution more widely known.)
