A seven year old boy was at the centre of a court room drama yesterday, when he opposed a ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy had a history of being beaten by his parents and initially the court ruled he should live with his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulations stating that the family unit should be maintained wherever possible.


The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they beat him also. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took an unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who he should have custody of him.


After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare, the judge granted temporary legal custody to the England football team, whom the boy firmly believed are not capable of beating anyone.
