ALLEGED MAID RAPE IN 07. I have not been able to lay my hands on a said Wikileaks series of diplomatic whisper in 2007 regarding the alleged rape of an Indonesian maid by a Cabinet minister then.
I can't say for sure it existed in the first place. But there has been talk. And there is this report by an international non-governmental organization which committed to paper that the rape did, indeed, happened in Kuala Lumpur some 3 years ago,. The report included an interview in July 2007 with the purported rape victim from her village in central Java. Copies of the report were said to have been given to the higher-ups in the US Embassy and the Indonesian Embassy. A copy was also sent to the Prime Minister's Office when Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was PM, a source said.
The maid had been working for the politician for eight years when the alleged rape took place. She is married and has two kids with her Javanese husband. According to the report by the NGO, the husband knew of the incident but not the children.
They, however, refused to press charge in 2007 out of fear and shame.
