Dubai: Parents accused of torturing their 6-year-old son

Published

The parents of a 6-year-old boy have been questioned by Dubai Police over his alleged torture, after the child’s school raised the alarm.
The school informed Dubai Police the boy was allegedly tortured by his parents for being a ‘naughty child’.
The school also said the boy, a Gulf national, was being starved by his parents as a punishment, according to Brig Dr Mohammad Al Murr, Director of the Human Rights Department at Dubai Police.
“The school noticed signs of violence on the body of the pupil and signs of burns on his foot despite the boy being a clever student. We started the investigation and summoned the boy and his parents,” Brigadier Al Murr said.
The Women and Children section of the Human Rights Department spoke with the child, who claimed he was being physically assaulted, tied up and starved by his parents.
“He is a smart boy and told us what happened. His parents tortured him despite his mother being a teacher in a different school,” Brigadier Al Murr added.
“However, his parents denied torturing him, but the mother said sometimes she uses force to discipline him because he is a hyper child and always tells others about what happens inside the house.”
He said the mother denied starving her son, but said she was preventing him from over-eating because.
The case was referred to Dubai Public Prosecution to complete the investigation. Dubai Police made a study about the incident and sent it to Community Development Institute to monitor the behaviour of the parents.
“We made the parents sign a document that they won’t hurt the boy anymore until a decision is issued by the court. We have a team cooperating with the school to check the condition of the child too,” Brigadier Al Murr added.
The department said they had 29 cases of children suffering physical assault, violence, and negligence in the first half of 2017.

A 39-year old woman, Iwuagwu Onyinyechi, has been apprehended by the Ogun police command after she defrauded a Christian church the sum of N100m, under the disguise of assisting the church to raise fund for her charity programme. Onyinyechi was able to defraud the church with forged documents three good times.

The police command in a statement read by its spokesman on Sunday Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Onyinyechi’s arrest followed a complain filed by a lawyer of the church, Godswill Ojakovo, to the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, in which he said that his client, the church, was defrauded by Onyinyechi through an act of forgery.

According to the spokesman, Oyeyemi, the suspect claimed to have obtained a Local Purchase Order (LPO) from a property company and pleaded to the church to help fund the LPO, after which a sum of N33.118m was successfully transferred into to her bank account.

While the church was awaiting the repayment of the loan, Onyinyechi came with another two LPOs she claimed she got from a Catholic Hospital, Iju and a private school in Ikorodu, Lagos State. Another sum of N77m was given to her, after convincing the church with relevant documents and proofs to back her claims.

But as soon as Onyinyechi got the last payment in September 2018, she went loose and this prompted the church to make discreet inquiries about the LPOs she submitted and found out that they were forged.
