Back home: Ammar, Adam, Arif and Aishah with Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Datuk Hamzah Zainuddin upon their arrival at Kuala Lumpur International Airport this morning from Sweden.
KUALA LUMPUR: All four children of the Malaysian couple who were detained by Swedish authorities over child abuse allegations have arrived here safely from Stockholm.
Touching down at around 7am on a Malaysia Airlines flight from Paris, the siblings Aishah (14 years old), Ammar (12), Adam (11) and Arif (7) looked tired but relieved when met at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
The children were accompanied by Deputy Foreign Minister Datuk Hamzah Zainuddin, as well as a special officer of the deputy minister and a relative of the children.
Heavily guarded, Aisah only managed to tell reporters that she was happy.
“I am happy to be back (home),” she said apparently still dazed from all the attention.
Hamzah refused to give details saying that he would brief the media later at the Prime Minister’s residence at Jln Duta where the children are scheduled to meet with the Prime Minister’s wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
The children's parents, Tourism Malaysia official Azizul Raheem Awalludin and Shalwati Norshal, a teacher, had been remanded since Dec 18 with the remand order having been extended three times.
They are being detained for alleged abuse of one of their four children.
Shalwati is alleged to have smacked their 12-year-old son on the arm for refusing to perform his prayers.
