On Being Raped

Posted: 07 Jul 2013 03:19 PM PDT

Not once did you ever visit the games village to check on the security situation. We hope that you will do the right thing and resign and take full responsibility for what has happened.

Dear YBhg. Dato' Seri Zolkples Embong, Ketua Pengarah, Majlis Sukan Malaysia
It is with regret and deep shame that I am writing this to you. This morning, the newspapers were splashed with the news that one of the "female" participants was brutally raped by three boys in her dormitory.
It was also most shameful to hear you say that the "security situation" at the games village was extremely tight, with guards constantly making rounds.
If what you say is true, then how did three boys enter the dormitory of the female victim at her most vulnerable time and commit the most heinous crime to her?
For your information, there was hardly any security at the games village. Anybody could enter the games village at whatever time they wanted; boys, men, all had free reign of the girls dormitory. We can only imagine the "horror" of what has been happening and had happened.
Do you know the grief, pain, suffering, shame of a girl who has been raped? Do you know how humiliating it is to make a police report that you had been raped? She carries it with her for the rest of her life. She wakes up screaming in the middle of the night because the "nightmare" never lets go of her.
It took great courage for the victim to report the crime done to her but you just brushed off all responsibility by hiding behind the new Youth & Sports Minister and pretending that all was OK at the games village.

Not once did you ever visit the games village to check on the security situation. We hope that you will do the right thing and resign and take full responsibility for what has happened. 


NSC leaves investigation into Sukma rape case to Police 

(The Malaysian Times) - The National Sports Council (NSC), as organiser of the Malaysia Games (Sukma) 2013, will leave investigation into an alleged rape reported during the event, to the police.

NSC director-general Datuk Seri Zolkples Embong said he ws only informed of the matter this morning.

"According to reports (in a local daily), it's become a police case so I'll leave it to the police.

"It is the first such case to be reported in Sukma and has interrupted the flow of the event this time," said Zolkples, who is also 2013 Sukma Managing Committee chairman, during a news conference at the Sukma Main Media Centre in the NSC here today.

Media reports stated that a handball athlete participating in Sukma had lodged a police report, alleging she was raped by a group of male athletes at the sports village in Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) last Wednesday.

According to the report, the 19-year-old said she was unconscious when the men took turns raping her. Prior to the incident, she was reportedly drinking with several male handball athletes at a basketball court.

Zolkples said he would contact the contingent on the matter.

"There was an offence and we (NSC) will get to the bottom of it, with the Federal Territory contingent.

"This can happen anywhere. In terms of safety, we have the cooperation of the police, and UPM has also increased the number of safety officers to monitor the sports village," he said.

Zolkples said security guards on duty monitored the area in the sports village but did not check every room.

"We have almost 4,000 athletes staying at the sports village, it's difficult to check each room. We also separate the blocks, according to gender, for safety purposes," he said.


Meanwhile Star Online reported  Three handball players, aged between 18 and 19, have been arrested in connection with the rape of a fellow teammate from the women's squad.

The three teenagers were picked up a day after the victim lodged a police report on Wednesday.

Serdang deputy OCPD Supt Lam Chin Fei said the three boys have been remanded till July 11 to facilitate investigations.

"We have classified the case under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape.

"They could face a maximum 20-year jail term and whipping if convicted," he said.

The 19-year-old girl, who was taking part in the ongoing Malaysia Games (Sukma), alleged that she was raped at the sports village at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) on July 3.

The girl claimed to have gone out for drinks with several of her teammates the night the alleged rape took place.

The next thing she realised was that she was naked and pinned down by a man at around 4am.

She claimed that she was in a semiconscious state when the three teenagers took turns to rape her.

DSP Lam urged anyone with information on the case to contact the police hotline at 03-2052 9999 or visit the nearest police station.

Meanwhile, Bernama reported that Police are investigating the rape allegations and are viewing the case seriously as it involved the country's sports image and crime among athletes, said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.

"This is a very serious report. We will carry out a thorough investigation," he said.
