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