KOTA BARU: The Women, Family and Community Development Ministry has been sending to the Swedish government the situation report on the four children of a Malaysian couple jailed in the Scandinavian country.

Its minister Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim said up to now, 14 reports had been sent through Wisma Putra to the Swedish Social Department.

“The reports were sent over a period of 14 weeks and this (sending the reports) was one of the conditions set by the Swedish authorities for the children to be allowed to be taken to and cared for in Malaysia,” she said when visiting the children, here, yesterday.

Shalwati Norshal and Azizul Raheem Awaluddin’s four children, Aishah, 14, Ammar, 12, Adam, 11 and Ariff, seven, are currently under the care of their aunt, Shaleena Norshal, 43. They are staying at her home in Kampung Wakaf Tok Wali, Melor, here.

The Solna District Court in Sweden had sentenced Shalwati to 14 months’ jail and Azizul Raheem to 10 months’ jail for abusing and violating the rights of their children.

Rohani said the reports covering, among others, the children’s emotional state and their schooling would be sent to Sweden until June.

She said the ministry was still retaining two officers to monitor the children’s progress, besides ensuring their comfort in Malaysia.

On her visit, Rohani said it was made in conjunction with Mothers Day celebration, besides wanting to see for herself the children’s well-being.

It was a touching moment when Aishah, through Rohani, wished Happy Mothers Day to Shalwati and then broke into tears. The minister, who also shed tears, then consoled the teenager.

The message read: “To my mom, we would like to say Happy Mothers Day and we love you very much.” — Bernama
