Campania, nun arrested for child abuse

Rome, Nov 17 (Prensa Latina) Slaps and hair pulling, kicks and slippers stamped on the hands even of 4 year olds. Children guests of a religious institution in Ischia waiting to find a family.

It happens in Ischia, to use brutal educational methods four nuns. Minors were mistreated within the religious institute of Santa Maria della Provvidenza located in Casamicciola Terme in Ischia (Naples).

The carabinieri have carried out measures against 4 nuns: one of them will go to prison. By delegation of the Public Prosecutor of Naples, the soldiers of the Ischia company have implemented an application order of personal precautionary measures, issued by the GIP of the Court of Naples at the request of the Public Prosecutor of Naples in the context of investigations conducted by the IV Section Investigations “protection of the weakest sections of the population”, against 4 seriously suspected sisters, in competition with each other, with regard to the crimes of ill-treatment of minors, aggravated personal injuries and aggravated private violence. The facts popped up in a kindergarten, destined to shelter dozens of children awaiting adoption, as well as others placed by their parents in the care of the nuns, against payment of a fee.

The investigations originated from the acquisition of a film, shot by a minor guest of the structure, in which a sister is filmed who, inside the refectory, is filmed in the act of slapping and forcibly pulling the hair of a desperate 4-year-old boy several times, in the presence of other children who invited her to stop, hitting also with a slap his 8-year-old brother intervened to defend him, causing blood to flow from his nose.

Another nun forced her to delete the video, which she did knowing that she could later recover it, to show her mother what was happening there, and proceed to deliver this evidence to the authorities.
