Ex-hubby wins case over child

A COURT has upheld a verdict giving a Japanese man 58,000 yuan (US$8,492) compensation from his ex-wife because he discovered the Chinese woman's four-year-old daughter wasn't his.

Shanghai No. 1 Intermediate People's Court said the decision was based on the opinion of judges for the first time as there was no evidence. The girl's mother, Liu Xin, had refused to let her daughter take a DNA test.

Since Liu refused to cooperate, the man, surnamed Nakajima, had no way to offer evidence. Thus, the court ruled that Liu should bear responsibility for refusing to cooperate.

Nakajima met Liu in 2000 and they married the next year. Nakajima paid the family's expenses.

Liu gave birth to a girl on November 13, 2003.

The couple divorced in 2005 and the girl lived with her mother. As the girl grew, Nakajima found she didn't resemble him at all.

He then took the girl for a DNA test without telling his ex-wife. It showed the girl wasn't his daughter.

Liu said the test couldn't be used as evidence because she had not approved it.
