Reported by Mirror(dot)co(dot)uk the cellar mum Elisabeth Fritzl is not yet ready to face her evil father - even via a courtroom video link.

Brave Elisabeth, 42, insisted on bringing forward her testimony to ensure he faces justice as soon as possible.
But on medical advice the preliminary hearing has been rescheduled for the end of the month - three weeks later than planned.
Elisabeth, held for 24 years in a dungeon at Fritzl's home in Amstetten, Austria, will be be able to see and hear him on a video link to his jail cell.
A family friend said: "Her doctors want to be certain that she is strong enough."
