As reported by Lianhe Wanbao yesterday, a Sec 2 student studying at ACS (Bakar Road) had had his phone confiscated because he was using it in class. The confiscation period was to be 3 months, according to school rules.

While the SIM card was returned to him, his phone got locked up in the school’s cabinet.

On the night of the confiscation, the parents of the boy emailed the school to ask for a return of the phone, stating 4 reasons. When they did not receive a reply, they issued a ‘letter of demand’ on 23 Mar in the name of their own law firm, threatening to take legal action. After a non-response from the school again, they applied for the court’s restraint order to take back their child’s iPhone 7.
