Four freed in exorcism trial

Published tisdag 17 april 2012 kl 13.38

The father and stepmother of a 12-year-old girl who was burned, had her hair shaved off, starved and forced to stay awake for several days, in order to draw out evil spirits, were freed by the district court in Borås on Tuesday.

Together with two ministers, all from Congo-Kinshasa, the couple had been charged with aggravated assault and kidnapping. One of the ministers was also charged with sexual assault because the girl has said she was filmed half-naked in church.

According to the court, the girl’s story was not believable and all four suspect were acquitted.
