STOCKHOLM (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The daughter of the Malaysian couple in Sweden on trial for allegedly hitting their children has given uncertain and vague interviews, saying family issues were a secret.

Aishah, who appeared evasive in a string of pre-recorded interviews, repeatedly said she was unsure or had forgotten details of events spanning the last two years.

"I don't feel comfortable telling this big event," she said, prompting the policewoman interviewing her to ask who decided it was a secret.

"For me, it's a secret. It's embarrassing. It's better not to talk to anyone," said Aishah.
