Having reported her brother and his wife to the Police for abusing a two-year-old baby, Tanya Fagaleo’o made a heartfelt plea for mercy before the District Court on Monday.
“I reported them because I love my brother and I wanted him to love the child even if it’s not his real son,” she said.
“I had advised him many times to care for the child like his own and I wanted them to spend time together and bond.”
When he didn't listen, Tanya did the unthinkable. She called the Police and told them about the abuse.
Tanya’s brother is Ameto Faasei, 39.
