PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Charges have been filed in a Stockholm court against Malaysian couple, Tourism Malaysia officer Azizul Raheem Awalludin and teacher Shalwati Norshal, who were accused of hitting their child, a Swedish English language news website reported.

The Local reported on Monday that case prosecutor Anna Arnell had filed charges of assault and gross violation of their children's integrity.

"In my judgment, the information provided by the children via remote video interrogation is trustworthy," Ms Arnell said in a statement.

"Together with other accompanying proof, such as witnesses and items that have been seized from the home, there are good grounds for the indictment," she said.
