Beijing, January 20: A woman has revealed that she was raped at the age of 12 by her own brother on her mother’s orders.
The victim now aged 26, who only identified herself as Lili, said that after being raped she was given over to a loan shark to settle her mother’s debts.
Lili has been working as a prostitute to support herself for the past eight years, reported Harian Metro.
“I blame my mother for my situation now. I will never forgive her,” the Star Online quoted Lili as saying.
She said her ordeal began after she went back to stay with her family after living with an aunt for nine years.
“After I was raped, my mother gave me to her loan shark who repeatedly raped me,” Lili revealed.
“I escaped and told my aunt what my mother and brother had done and she made a police report,” she said.
She added her family was in disarray because her mother had also ‘sold’ four other sisters of her 10 siblings.
Lili was taken in by the Welfare Department after her mother and brother were arrested, but moved to Kuala Terengganu once she turned 18 and started to work as a prostitute.
She has three children, two of whom she gave away. She is currently expecting her fourth child.
She is caring for her third child but plans to put her fourth child up for adoption.
