STOCKHOLM (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The eldest son of the Malaysian couple who are on trial in Sweden for allegedly abusing their children thinks that his parents will be found guilty.

Asked what he thought about the future, Ammar, 12, said his parents were likely to be jailed before he would be able to see them.

"I just feel that they'll be found guilty and put in a real jail," he said during his fifth pre-recorded interview shown in a Solna district court in Stockholm on Monday.

However, when the Swedish policewoman asked what he thought of his own future, Ammar said all he could think of was hugging his parents again.
