JAKARTA (AFP) — A medical examination of a teenage US-Indonesian model who claimed she was raped and tortured by her Malaysian prince husband, has confirmed she was physically abused, a forensic expert said on Tuesday.
Manohara Odelia Pinot, 17, last week told reporters she was treated like a sex slave after her marriage last year to Tengku Temenggong Mohammad Fakhry, the prince of Malaysia’s Kelantan state.
She escaped the prince’s guards at a Singapore hotel and returned to her family in Indonesia with tales of abuse, rape and torture at the hands of the 31-year-old prince.
“There are slash wounds on many parts of her body, especially on her chest. Some are still fresh,” forensic doctor Mun’im Idries told AFP.
“We are still examining her blood and urine samples because she said she had been given jabs,” he said adding that he also found an injection mark on her back.
What else to say? Private matter? Now of course the husband will ask for independent medical opinion. But Dr Mun’im Idries is a respected forensic pathologist, not your fly by night quack. Check out his credentials.
The police report has been lodged. Now the mess will become bigger. Then there will be a divorce petition. I wonder what court will dispute Dr Mun’im’s findings.
This is a cautionary tale for all those chicks looking for guys with fat wallets. I may sound like a cliche, but life’s no fairytale, as countless fairytale turned nightmare has shown us.
Slash wounds? Drugs? Is it GHB I wonder.
