Their father, an employee of Tourism Malaysia, and mother, a school teacher who is on unpaid leave, were detained by the Swedish authorities on Dec 18. On Thursday, their remand have been extended for another two weeks.
The eldest of the four children who only wished to be known as Aisyah, 14, said she and her three brothers aged 12, 11 and 7 had been staying with the foster family as arranged by the Swedish social service after their parents were detained on Dec 18.
When contacted by Bernama, Aisyah said they were not happy staying at the foster home as the family kept a dog.
"They also eat food that is not halal....although they do not feed us with the non-halal food, we share the crockery and kitchen utensils," she said.
Aisyah said they were not allowed to meet family members from Malaysia, as well as their parents.
According to her, a week after their parents' arrest, their relatives from Malaysia visited Sweden to meet her and her brothers, but were not allowed to do so by the Swedish authorities.
The couple's second child, Ammar, said they wanted to return to Malaysia as quickly as possibly as they could not stand living with strangers.
"I miss mummy and daddy. We want to go back to Malaysia but they won't let us. We are sad each time we come back from school as our parents are not around.
"Before this, mummy and daddy would send and fetch us from school. Now we have to go by public transport ourselves. Our youngest brother cries every day because he misses mummy and daddy," he said. - Bernama
