THE mother of a 10-year-old girl who claimed another child made a noose with a skipping rope and tried to hang her from a tree at school says she has now been served with a summons for a restraining order by the child’s parents.

Police decided not to lay charges after investigating the incident at Queen of Apostles Primary School in Riverton.

Belinda Yoon, who spoke out earlier this month about the terrifying bullying experienced by her daughter Amber, who was born with serious medical conditions, said in an emotional video posted on Facebook that she had just been visited by two police officers.

“I have been served with a restraining order summons from the parents of the girl who hung my daughter from a tree at her school,” she said.

“Apparently I’ve been driving by their house in an agitated state.”

A sobbing Mrs Yoon said she could not have driven past the parents’ house because she did not know where they lived or even their first names.

“Seriously, I’m literally reading this, going ‘how is this right in any way,” she said. “They’ve not said sorry for what their daughter did, I am getting summoned to court for a restraining order… I don’t even know the dad’s name. How does this get any better for our family?”

Mrs Yoon said the summons also stated that she had “declared on Channel 9 that she’s not happy with the outcome of the police investigation”.

“No, but I have never blamed that on your daughter,” she said. “I am not happy that my daughter was hung from a tree and that’s no-one’s responsibility, how is this right in any way?”

“I know that we have done nothing wrong in this fight. We are fighting for every child in WA.”
