This woman from Stockholm is being suspected of illegal detention of a 41-year-old man, his son, who is in dire condition when he was found. Currently, the man is being hospitalized.

From the apartment block in Haninge, south of Stockholm, the police and local media said that the woman is being arrested for keeping her son confined in their flat for almost three decades.

A public prosecutor in charge, Emma Olsson, said the 70-year-old woman who denies any wrongdoing was being held against suspicion of illegal detention and abuse of her own son.

The son is hospitalized to treat his physical injuries that were present when he was found, but it wasn’t specified where he got them from.

According to the local newspaper, the son was found by a relative who got curious and opened the door to their unlocked flat as the mother of the son was hospitalized at the moment.

The relative mentioned to the authorities 20 years ago that she had suspected the woman of being in total control of her son, but no official action had been taken and other family members had urged her not to cause trouble.

“But I understood he was in there and he must be afraid,” she told the newspaper.

“I pushed the door and shouted hello. It stank of urine, dirt, and dust. It smelled rotten. No one can have cleaned for many years,” she added.

She pushed her way through piles of rubbish to the kitchen, where she found the man sitting in a corner. She noticed that his legs look horrible – they were filled with bruises and sores.

The man could barely stand, missing much of his teeth, and had a slurred speech.

“He spoke very fast and a little incoherently but he was not afraid of me,” she continued. “I’m in shock, but I’m thankful he got help and will survive.”

Apparently, the woman detained has lost a child before at a young age, and once she got another son, she named it the same as her previous one and became very over-protecting of him. Aftonbladet newspaper mentioned that the son has been taken out of school when he was around 12 or 13.

“She stole his life from him and manipulated the people around her in order to keep her secret … he has been badly let down by all of society,” the unnamed relative told Aftonbladet.

An unidentified neighbor who lived in the same building told the paper they had not seen the man for years.

“They almost never went outside, and never even opened the windows for fresh air,” she said.

“The apartment was sealed,” added the neighbor.

Many neighbors found the situation strange, she said. “But what can you do? How do you know what’s going on behind closed doors?”

Mothers-Teachers Collaboration Makes PdPR A Success

Published

on

KINABATANGAN, June 25  — The implementation of home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) requires full commitment from teachers and students, but the role of parents is also important in ensuring its effectiveness.

Teachers at a school in the interior of Sabah are aware of mothers’ influence in the success of PdPR, especially in areas where it is difficult to conduct online learning.

A teacher, Najme Nasir, said mothers of pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Sungai Lokan, had given a strong commitment to making PdPR a success since last year.

“The one who gives a lot of cooperation is the mother at home, the one who helps the students a lot is the mother, the one who keeps nagging kids about their homework is the mother.

“For that, we really appreciate the role of mothers in helping their children and also helping us teachers implement PdPR,” he told Bernama when contacted.

Najme said the commitment of the mothers made it easier for teachers to monitor the progress of students at home as some areas in Kampung Sungai Lokan did not have good internet access due to the hilly terrain.

The school’s teachers and headmaster, Masnah Apong, always looking for ideas to encourage students to be interested in learning, he said.

Among them is using their own money to buy school supplies, wrapped them before delivering them to 62 school children at their homes.

“There is no denying that the performance of students in the interior is different from that in the city, let alone when PdPR was launched following the pandemic.

“For us, we want the students here not to be left behind in their studies,” he said.
