The daughter of a woman who had been battered by her partner says her mother has been receiving counselling and additional medical treatment  following her ordeal.

Ms Milissa Joseph says her mother has endured the violent domestic situation for some 11 years and has refused to leave despite the pleas of relatives.

She says there have been some small signs of improvement in her mom’s physical condition, but the road to recovery may be very long.

Ms Joseph says she is willing to push the matter as far as she can, and has been contemplating meeting with the Director of Public Prosecutions, when her mother comes around to pressing charges.

Ms Joseph believes that her mother is reluctant to file a formal complaint with police because of fear. However she is confident that as public support for her continues to grow, she will get the courage to stand up for herself.
