Abusive mother in Kuřim case released on parole

A court in Opava on Friday conditionally released a woman sentenced to prison for the abuse of her two sons in the 2007 Kuřim case. She has served six years out of her nine-year term. The boys’ mother was sentenced along with five other people including Barbora Škrlová, a 33-year-old woman at the time who posed a 13-year-old girl. The group severely abused the boys, presumably to force them into obedience; the true motivation of the abusers has never been established.
