A 17-YEAR-OLD Indonesian model, allegedly held against her will by her husband, a member of the Kelantan royalty in Malaysia, returned home yesterday after a dramatic escape from a hotel in Singapore.
Ms Manohara Odelia Pinot said she was being 'escorted' from her room on the 13th floor of Royal Plaza Hotel to another room on a lower floor on Saturday when she managed to escape from her bodyguards. Referring to her bodyguards, she said 'they were going to give me an injection (in the lift), but I resisted'.
Instead, she kept pressing the emergency button in the lift on its way down.
Recalling her ordeal at a packed news conference yesterday, she said that when the lift stopped on the third floor, 'the Singaporean police took me to a room'.
'Not long afterwards, my mother came in. I hugged her,' said Ms Manohara.
Her mother, Madam Daisy Fajarina, had flown to Singapore from Jakarta earlier on Saturday after receiving a tip-off from a Kelantan palace official that her daughter and son-in-law had arrived in Singapore on Friday.
She got out. Good for her. Good for her family.
An arranged “marriage” I assume.
The eyes give it away. Yep. Those Asian eyes of sadness. Despite the smile.
Lovely girl. I wish her well.
What a life. Blech!!!!
Let’s hope the next headline about this situation doesn’t include the words, “honor-killing”.
It appears she escaped from Jeff Van Gundy.
So, I take it they didn’t live happily ever after?
“She got out. Good for her. Good for her family.”
Maybe. This is a Muslim country where women are considered property, and her husband is a member of the royal family. I wouldn’t call this a happy ending just yet. She, and her family, need to get out of the country.
Okay. A step in the right direction and godspeed.
Thanks for the ping, Nick.
When are the orgamizations who claim to care about women going to wake up?
The way women are treated in the Islamic world is horrific. It is institutionalized rape and brutality.
Now that Obama has proclaimed the US the “one of the greatest Muslim countries in the world” Obama has just declared America one of the greatest Muslim countries in the world.
This from le Figaro, a center right newspaper. It is a direct quote
So he claims the U.S. is a Muslim country, but a mo nth ago he said the U.S. is not a Christian country.
