The world’s most expensive residential school is being prosecuted for alleged bullying after billionaire parents of one of his former students said the school had failed to protect their daughter.
Businessman Pankaj Oswal and his wife, socialist Radhika Oswal, say their daughter was bullied while she was in class during her run by her classmates. The couple allege by telling the Le Rosey Institute, which charges an annual fee of $ 195,199 (£ 100,000), that the alleged bullying did nothing.
Oswal said that the Swiss school, which includes a 15th-century chapel and is located next to picturesque Lake Geneva, has become a “playground for wealthy students to do whatever they want” and that students “made fun and made fun” of her daughter on her ethnicity according to Sunday mail.
The couple said their daughter suffered from anxiety attacks and sleeplessness as a result of the alleged bullying.
In legal documents, the couple alleged that when they complained, the school did nothing. In the documents filed in Switzerland, the couple claims damages in the form of their fees for the duration of their absence and the costs of a private tutor for this period. The school denies the parents’ claims, the report said.
The school was attended by a number of royal family members from around the world, including generations of the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, as well as the children of billionaire transporter magnate Stavros Niarchos, the children of Elizabeth Taylor and Sean Lennon. , son of John Lennon.
The school is located in Rolle east of Geneva in Switzerland, but also has a ski resort where students and staff live between January and March.
Their daughter had attended the Le Rosey Institute for six years before being withdrawn from school.
the Mail On Sunday reports that the couple will donate any earned damage to a charity.
“We are saddened that this has happened, but, as parents, we have a duty to act,” said Mr. and Mrs. Oswal in a statement.
