Malaysians charged in Sweden for hitting kids
by Oliver Gee
A Malaysian couple accused of hitting their children in Sweden have been formally indicted in a case that has caused outrage back in Malaysia. If convicted, they face up to ten years in prison.
The parents were arrested in December after being accused of hitting their children for not performing their prayers. They have been since been held on remand while their four children were taken by social services.
On Monday, the prosecutor filed charges of gross violation of their children's integrity (grov fridskränkning) and for assault.
