Rubingah, the Indonesian maid who had served at Rais Yatim's residence from 1999 until 2007 has finally came out with a denial that should clear the minister's name of any rape allegation.
"I was never raped by Rais as reported by some parties," she said. Read her confession as reported by Gerakan Anti-PKR. Also read this Indonesian news portal here.
Her written statement reads, among others:
"...tidak pernah terjadi upaya pelecehan seksual oleh majikan saya selama bekerja di Malaysia. Saya bekerja selama delapan tahun di rumah Datuk Rais. Selama itu baik-baik saja, tidak pernah ada permasalahan, apalagi terkait perlakuan kasar serta tidak senonoh terhadap saya...".
Hope it helps clear the air, especially the 'row' between Rais and some bloggers who have been attacking him of late.
But still, it wasnt the bloggers who accused Rais. They wrote based on information from the Indonesian media and also Wikileaks.
So, what's next?
