Lero Pat from Mendi, in the Southern Highlands Province, almost lost her life when she was repeatedly bashed up by her son-in-law on New Year’s Night.
Her son-in-law is a prominent Lawyer and Principal Founder of a reknowned Law Firm.
As millions welcomed in the New Year with celebration, it was a horrific experience for Lero Pat, a mother of five young girls from Mendi in the Southern Highlands Province, who resides in Port Moresby.
She visited the EMTV Studio to tell her of her ordeal.
Lero claims it’s not the first time her son-in-law has bashed her up badly. This has been happening since her daughter married a prominent lawyer about three years ago. Lero claims one of her younger daughters was also allegedly raped by this lawyer.
Lero was rushed to Port Moresby General Hospital where she received eight stitches to her head and it’s a sad case for her as she will have one of her fingers amputated, all the bones being crushed by the tyre rim that was used to repeatedly bash her.
She has reported the matter at the Boroko Police Station, but they required a Medical report. She got that done, and now wants police to deal with the matter and ensure perpetrators of violence against women are put behind bars.'
