Taiwanese actress Alyssa Chia held a press conference a few days ago, revealing her marriage problem and appealing to her husband, Sun Zhihao, to bring back their daughter which he abducted four months ago after an argument.
Alyssa revealed that her husband and mother-in-law have taken away her 4-year-old daughter from their Shanghai home in November 2008. She has only been allowed to talk to her daughter on phone for a couple of times after the abduction, but has totally lost contact with the Sun’s family soon after.
Alyssa has appealed to Sun to step out and settle the issue openly; her accompanying lawyer said that they would seek legal option if their plead is unheeded.
It’s a great shame for the Sun family. The reason for the argument and abduction is unclear, and I probably should wait for both side of the stories to give my judgement… but unless the mother is causing direct harm to the daughter, there’s no good reason to take away the kid and isolated her from her mother altogether.
Hopefully the public pressure is enough to force the husband to settle their dispute properly. Unfortunate for the child though… she will have to endure this mess at such tender age regardless of whose fault it is.
