Tegar Septian, better known as Tegar, has accused his Singaporean manager Arif Dollah, of sexual assault.
According to reports from various news source, the 13-year-old Indonesian went to seek assistance today at the country’s National Commission for Child Protection and will follow up with a police report.
The assaults apparently happened while Tegar, who was a street busker before he was discovered, was in Malaysia between November last year and January this year.
Tegar revealed in a press conference yesterday (see video below) that Arif Dollah, whom he calls “Pak Arif”, had requested that he extend his stay in Kuala Lumpur. It was then that Arif engaged him in unusual requests, such as sleeping only in his underwear, smooching before shopping or buying food and taking showers together.
Said Tegar, “everytime I wanted to sleep, he’d come close to me. I’d ask, ‘what do you want? I want to sleep, I’m tired. That’s when he’d ask me to shower with him, because he wanted to bathe me.”
“I was shocked and afraid… I just did as he wanted. We showered normally, both of us took off our clothes. But nothing happened.”
Reports say other than preventing Tegar from going home to Indonesia, Arif also took away the boy’s handphone and laptop so he couldn’t communicate with his parents, who’re separated.
This isn’t the first time Arif’s been involved in child molest.
“We’ve received reports that Arif committed sexual assault against his own stepchild, who at the time was 13 years old. Arif’s ex-wife even told us to be careful of him,” said Arist Merdeka Sirait, head of the child protection commission.-MYNEWSHUB.CC
