STOCKHOLM (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The eldest son of the Malaysian couple in Sweden, who are on trial for allegedly abusing their children, has claimed he was beaten "over 1000" times within a year.

In a video recorded by the police last December and shown to the court on Wednesday, 12-year-old Ammar said his mother Shalwati Nurshal often beat him when he talked back, stomped his feet, or watched Youtube videos instead of joining the family for dinner.

Shalwati and her husband Azizul Raheem Awalluddin, a Tourism Malaysia director in Stockholm, are on the second day of trial in the Solna District Court over charges of abusing their children.

Ammar, who appeared nervous at the beginning of the video, asked if his parents would find out about the interview.
