Christian parish thought young girl was a witch
A twelve-year-old girl was burned with a red-hot knife, beaten and forced to starve. Her parents believed she was a witch in need of exorcism. Today starts the trial in Borås District court.
The girl's father and step-mother and two pastors in small Christian parishes are, among other things, accused of aggravated abuse and gross violation of integrity.
The girl is now 14-years-old and lives in a foster home.
