Forgetfulness, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
An man, Weng, in his eighties, in Taidong went to court, to SUE his own daughter for taking his money of over one-and-a-half million dollars, and asked for the courts to make her return it back to him, his grandson testified that the money was given to them for school and for their separate marriages. The doctor examined the elderly person, and found, that his memories are deteriorating, that he was suspected of being demented, and so, the courts ruled that he’d lost.
Cheng, the elderly said, that his daughter told him that there are multiple cases of scams, and that in order for him to keep him money where it was safe, she’d taken care of it for him, and so, he’d gone to the Farmer’s Union to make a transfer, and wired over a million dollars over to her account, and now, he’d wanted the money back, but his daughter had denied it, that, was why he’d gone through the courts, to get it back, otherwise, “My daughter has a job, with a steady source of income, why would I need to give her money?”
Cheng, the woman said, that her father lived with her and her family for seven years, and felt bad for her, taking care of her children, and so, he’d promised to put up the money for his grandson’s study abroad, along with the money for their marriages, and had given them a total of one and a half million dollars totally, “Back then, he’d told us that it was a gift, and now he’d wanted it back, and he’d taken us to court, it’s really very upsetting.”
Cheng’s younger daughter also said, that from before when her older brother went aboard, her grandfather was supportive, and given him one million dollars N.T. for it, and, given half a million dollars later on, “said that it was for my dowry and money for my younger brother’s studies.”
The judge asked for the details, and Cheng the elderly man replied, that he “couldn’t recall”, and claimed, “I didn’t make a withdraw for her (his daughter).”; and when the judge questioned him, “if you didn’t withdraw and give it to her, how would she have it?”, the elderly stressed, “I didn’t withdraw, nor did I give to her.”, it’d made people believe, that his memories are fading out because of old age.
The judge asked the doctors to diagnose him, and they’d found that Cheng showed signs of “aging, short-term memory problems, and dementia”, that all of this would affect his memories, and so, the judge ruled that because of his memories deteriorating, he’d forgotten the promise made to his own daughter.
And so, this, is how it goes, a father SUED his own daughter, because of money issues, and, for some UNKNOWN reasons, money seemed to be an EMPHASIS for the elderly who are demented, but, taking your family to court over it, that’s just going overboard, but hey, that’s just MY O-P-I-N-I-O-N here!!!
