October 25, Fushun, Liaoning. The 6-year-old girl was abused by her mother and her boyfriend for three months. She was doused with hot water, extracted teeth with forceps, igniter burner, pricked legs with steel needles, and fed cat food He was sent to hospital for fracture. At present, the mother and her boyfriend have been detained by torture, and the trial will be held after the child’s injury identification.
The father of the child is a truck driver. He divorced in 18 years. After the divorce, it was awarded to her mother. However, her father has been taking care of it. It was handed over on January 1 this year.
Liu Yanyan, the mother of the child (not to mention the mother of the child, she is not worthy of it) lives with her current boyfriend Chen Guowei (who was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for robbery) with her child (not her real name). From March to may, 2020, Chen Guowei repeatedly injured a 6-year-old child with hot water, beating with fists and feet and washing board and tooth extraction with forceps for various reasons, resulting in severe scald and multiple fractures of the children.
At the same time, the children were stabbed into their thighs with needles, allowed to sleep on floor tiles, did not cover the quilt, punished them for kneeling on the washing board for a long time, scalded their bodies with cigarette ends, forced them to swallow cigarette butts, eat cat food, eat cat excrement, and do not give food to eat and other cruel means, resulting in many injuries to children’s body surface. And not timely medical treatment.
As the legal guardian of her daughter, Liu Yanyan, the child’s mother, not only stopped Chen Guowei from beating and abusing her daughter, but also failed to seek medical treatment in time. On the contrary, Liu Yanyan, together with Chen Guowei, beat up her 6-year-old daughter. On May 21, 2020, two people felt that the child was seriously injured and was on the verge of death. They were sent to the hospital for treatment. At the same time, he falsely claimed that the child needed money for treatment. When the child’s grandmother arrived at the hospital to send money, she saw her granddaughter’s injury, and then entrusted her sister to call the police.
At this time, in order to prevent the child’s grandmother from reporting to the police, Liu Yanyan also threatened his mother and grandmother. The old lady really understood the justice. Her daughter threatened not to report to the police. The old lady still committed suicide to the police and said the sentence of death.
According to the father of the child, he and his mother divorced in February 2018. Although the children were awarded to the child’s mother, they were all brought by themselves before. They handed the child over to each other on January 1 this year, but they didn’t expect to be abused like this by them.
The child’s grandmother said that she knew that the child was injured on May 22. At that time, she listened to the child’s mother saying that the child’s bath was scalded by boiling water, and she fell down after being scalded on the ground. Then she broke her arm and had no money in hospital, so she asked the child’s grandmother to send money. A thorough examination in the hospital found a needle in the child’s leg, so the hospital doctors suspected that the child had been abused. At present, the child’s grandmother has called the police, and the child’s mother and boyfriend have been detained by the police for criminal detention, and the trial will be held after the child’s injury is identified.
The child’s injury needs medical expenses, needs someone to take care of, abuse for up to three months, how to help her out of the psychological shadow, and the child needs to be raised in the future, these are all difficult problems. Although it is very difficult, I hope there will be a good solution. Back to this case, it is not only maltreatment in the criminal law, but also refers to the physical and mental persecution of family members who live together by beating and scolding, binding, freezing and starving, restricting freedom, abusing personality, not being treated or forced to do excessive labor, and so on Obviously, it is beyond the limit of maltreatment and obviously has the intention to hurt the victim. It should be convicted of intentional injury and wait for the child’s injury to be identified, which may constitute intentional injury causing serious injury. Moreover, its various means are very cruel, lasting for a long time. The subjective intention of torturing the victim is obvious. The parents’ torture of their daughter has a great social impact, which has constituted the means of criminal law, which is particularly cruel and has the possibility of death penalty.
They are so vicious to their own children that they expect to be filial to their children in the future?
What you give, what you get.
Children are not objects, not to mention parents’ cash cow. Some parents’ actions are really disgusting.
As for the abuse of children by parents, the “crime of maltreatment” can usually be punished in law.
