A three-year old girl who was allegedly raped at a private nursery in Myanmar spoke out in court Wednesday (September 11).
She testified through a video conference.
Her lawyer says she was able to identify the real culprit.
(SOUNDBITE) (Burmese), COMPLAINANT LAWYER, YWAT NU AUNG, SAYING:
"When the court showed the girl the picture of the suspects, she was able to point out the individual on the presented picture, and she was so angry seeing these pictures that she stomped angrily at them with her heel."
The girl only nicknamed as "Victoria", was assaulted in May.
Authorities had arrested the school's driver, but the evidence presented was inconclusive.
The driver's lawyer said the girl's testimony proved his innocence.
(SOUNDBITE) (Burmese) DEFENCE LAWYER, KHIN MAUNG ZAW, SAYING:
"The girl testified with video conference. She is very intelligent and able to recall her memory. She can answer well to questions of the court. Everything that she said is not against my client."
The controversy has sparked outrage in Myanmar.
With calls for a speedy trial and justice for the victim.
