mother says sorry for beating child up in ThailandThe story of 4 year old Minnie came to light after a neighbor took the child to Bo Phut police after seeing she had severe injuries. The police ensured the child was taken to hospital and she was placed under the care of child welfare agencies, reported Sanook.

The mother, named only as Aew, 35, was reunited with her child yesterday. She apologized for what she had done saying that she had run out of money.

Her husband who is a Malaysian national had not sent her any money recently and she had been forced to go to a loan shark but even that avenue was now closed off. She also apologized to society for what she had done.

Jarnee Ratanajinda of the Samui family protection services said that the best interests of all concerned had to be followed.

The child will be separated from the mother with her consent for the time being. She said that the child is scared and is still suffering from her injuries. She used to live with relatives in Lampang before moving to be with her mother in Samui and authorities are contacting them to decide the best way forward.

Minnie has an Australian father but no mention was made of him in the report.
