A Hong Kong man was convicted on Tuesday for forcing his nine-year-old son to walk naked in the streets as punishment for failing to finish his homework, a judiciary spokeswoman said.

Chan Kwok-yim, 45, was charged with ill-treating his son and bound over for the sum of 1,000 Hong Kong dollars for two years on good behaviour with conditions.

Magistrate Symon Wong said she gave Chan a light sentence because she believed he had good intentions and loved his son, although he was hot-tempered and used the wrong method to teach his son, according to local media.

Chan was remanded in police custody as he was reportedly involved in another child abuse case.
