Malaysian Diplomat Case on 3rd Degree

Woman at the Centre of Malaysian Diplomat Case Speaks to 3rd Degree


The woman at the centre of the Malaysian diplomat sexual assault case speaks to reporter Paula Penfold in an exclusive interview on 3rd Degree tonight.

According to the woman’s wishes, a submission was made by her lawyer this week to have her automatic name suppression lifted. Suppression will lapse at the commencement of 3rd Degree tonight.

She has so far remained silent as politicians, commentators and pundits have debated the way the case has been handled.

“It’s not just the way the case has been bungled that she wants to talk about – although she certainly doesn’t hold back,” says Penfold.

“More importantly to her, there are things she wants to say about how what has happened represents wider problems around sexual violence in New Zealand. It’s a powerful, compelling interview.”

3rd Degree, tonight at 8.40pm on TV3. The programme will be available online via 3NOW and www.3news.co.nz immediately after screening.
