16 November 2008

A father of two children, aged 9 and 12 years, have been remanded for four days by the police while the children’s stepmother was arrested and later set on bail on charges of abusing them.

The children’s 58-year-old grandfather reported to the police on Friday when he found bruises on them. The victims claimed that they had been beaten by their father and stepmother with a clothes hanger and a cane after they had failed to iron the clothes of their stepbrother and stepsister on the night before.

A medical report has indicated that there are signs of abuse on the children.
