the Parents of a one year boy has been prosecuted, accused, during the period between October 2017 and January 2018 to have starved their son.
In spite of advice from doctors and social authorities, the couple only fed their son with a vegan diet, which, according to the accusation does not have contained enough protein or fat.
This writes the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.
According to the prosecutor the relationship seriously, since the child appeared to be serious but of the diet.
The 20-year-old mother of the boy look somewhat different on the matter.
He never got a strict vegan diet. We went to several dieticians to get help, but he (the child red.) didn't want to eat, she explained in an interview.
She also pointed out earlier that the pair sought out the help in the healthcare system, already when the child was four months old, but not received the help they wanted.
the Boy was already in February 2018 tvangsfjernet from his parents, as they were considered to lack insight into the severity of the child's state of health, and the appellate court affirmed the decision on the order in a judgment in July last year.
According to the 33-year-old father, it was not the vegan diet, which was the cause of the boy's malnutrition.
the Boy's mother has autism, and when she was in the same age, she had also difficulty eating. Our son may have autism and show the same trends with food. Some children just find it difficult to eat, he has previously stated.
Both parents refuse guilty in the criminal proceedings.
