Court Remands Woman Accused of Assaulting Daughter

The 43-year-old woman accused of assaulting her daughter and injuring her while intoxicated has been remanded in custody.

Maria Waqasaqa was issued an interim restraining order when she appeared before a magistrates court in Nasinu this afternoon.

The court heard that Waqasaqa hit her 16-year-old daughter with a mop stick, and threw an empty beer at her, hitting her on the head.

The case will be called again next Friday, but before a high court in Suva.

Please speak up and report all forms of child abuse to Police or call the Child Helpline toll free number 1325 for assistance.
