An eleven year old girl was sexually abused by a close relative, TV21 reports. The girl was subjected to repeated rapes by her 19 year old cousin, that lasted over a year.

The traumatized girl was examined at the Skopje clinic, where the assaults were confirmed. According to the TV station, the mother had to be removed during the police questioning about the incident, as she was pushing the girl to change the statements she was giving.
