Talas District Court dropped criminal charges against 72-year-old man, who was charged under the article «Failure to fulfill obligations on raising of a minor.»
The court ruling states that the man had worked at an orphan boarding school for 11 years as a teacher. The accused illegally took the fifth-grader to his home and forced her to do household work.
«In particular, the defendant forced the fifth-grade schoolgirl to do the laundry and other chores. He ignored the request of his colleagues to bring the child back to school. During the trial, the legal representative of the victim stated that had no complaints to the teacher, and refused to support the private-state prosecution,» the court said.
