The Herald reports:
Two parents who abused their teenage daughter by forcing her to take freezing baths, hitting her and cutting her hair because they thought she was a witch have been jailed.
The Congolese refugees were both found guilty by a jury in Auckland yesterday of several charges relating to almost four years of abuse.
After being convicted, the duo told court workers they were innocent because they were performing witchcraft on the then 15-year-old girl because they believed she was possessed.
You know I would be okay if we asked people wanting to live in New Zealand if they believe in witchcraft and saying no if they do.
