A new Singapore tribunal to help parents collect maintenance from children has won immediate business, confounding sceptics who thought Asian parents would not want to take such legal steps.

The Tribunal for the Maintenance of Parents received 11 claims and several telephone queries on Saturday, its first day of business. Set up under legislation passed last year, the tribunal was established to provide a legal mechanism for neglected parents to claim maintenance from their children. Reuter - Singapore
