BEIJING - The father of a 13-year-old boy has been ordered to return red packet money given to his son, according to a local court in Guangzhou, in southern China's Guangdong province, on Thursday (Feb 14).
The son, surnamed Su, took his father to court after discovering his bank account, in which he had deposited 3,000 yuan (S$601) of red packet money between 2014 and 2015, had been emptied in March 2016.
The father argued that the money was mostly given by his side of the family.
He said that the boy's mother, whom he had divorced years ago, was taking advantage of a change in custody arrangements to take the money for herself.
The mother was awarded custody of the boy in April 2016 and has lived with him since.
