Father acquitted of charges of sexual violence against child

Reggio Emilia, November 21 - An Albanian couple was acquitted Wednesday on charges relating to an alleged sexual assault against their five-year-old child after a court found no crime occurred. The father had been accused of sexual assault after a secret camera in the child's room filmed him kissing the child on the genitals. The mother was charged with not protecting the child by prosecutor Maria Rita Pantani, who had asked for a nine-year prison sentence for each parent. The kiss was filmed by a hidden camera placed by police after teachers complained when they overheard the child mention what happened. However, the court heard from Iliria, an Albanian community association, which said that the gesture was a tradition in northern Albania.
