WIFE HOPED THINGS WOULD GET BETTER
When told of her husband's denials, Madam Fifi maintained that Mr Salim had kicked her older son on Feb 28.
"I saw his leg move. How could he even claim that such a thing did not happen?" she said.
Madam Fifi said she had allowed Mr Salim to continue living with her and the boys after getting the personal protection orders because she hoped things would get better.
"I wanted to give him a chance to change. But now I realise it was foolish of me," she said.
Her immediate neighbour, who wanted to be known only as Mr Rosman, said he often noticed injuries on the older boy.
The site manager, who has known the family for three years, said he was the one who informed the school after he saw the boy sporting a black eye on March 2.
But he admitted he had not personally seen Mr Salim abusing the boy or Madam Fifi.
