A woman who is accused of beating her 18-month-old son has denied the charges, while a judge ordered the child in state foster care until the trial in June.
The Nicosia District Court on Monday heard a case of a 23-year-old woman who was arrested over the weekend on child battery allegations, following a complaint filed with police by her neighbour.
“I would never hit my son,” the woman told the court.
The mother is facing child battery charges in connection with two alleged incidents of inflicting bodily harm on her own son
The mother, described as a foreign national, is facing child battery and common assault charges following two alleged incidents, where she is being accused of inflicting bodily harm on her own son on February 10 and last Saturday.
She reportedly questioned the basis of the prosecution by asking “why did you not find my fingerprints” during her arraignment in court.
The woman was released on conditions, such as handing over her travel documents and reporting to a police station twice a week.
Her child will remain in state foster care until her trial, which has been set for 16 June 2019.
