Depok Education Agency gave assurances on Tuesday that rape victim, SAS, could continue studying at the school that reportedly expelled her following media reports that she had been held captive and raped by a man she met via the social networking website Facebook.
“We will monitor this case and make sure that SAS is allowed to come to school. We will also check on her psychological state. For the time being, as she is still refusing to go to school, teachers will come to her house,” said the agency’s interim head Muhammad Nurdin.
