Youth who was tied to wall moved to new care home

The mentally handicapped youth who was tied to the wall in his room because nurses said he was too disruptive has been moved to a new home, news agency ANP reports.

Brandon became the subject of a television report and parliamentary debate after his mother went public with her son’s plight.
The 18-year-old is doing well, lives in a small group and is no longer tied up, she told a television programme on Wednesday evening.
