Muhammed Zaini Mazlan, the Malaysian lawyer appointed by Manohara Odelia Pinot parties to represent them in the legal process that will be doing in Malaysia. Many felt that this appointment is the right step. All is done to simplify their way on the legal process in cases of violence experienced by Manohara while in Kelantan, Malaysia. Mazlan him self ensures Manohara that no one is immune to the law in Malaysia, including the Kingdom of Kelantan's family member.
"The court there is very independent, so we do not worry if there will be interventions. no one is immune from the law in Malaysia. But specifically for the Sultan or the King, Malaysia have a special court," Mazlan said, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Jakarta.
For Tengku Temenggong Fakhry as the prince of Kelantan, even though he was the son of the Sultan, he will be charged in the same court with the ordinary people. Mazlan also claim not to be afraid if there will be counter attacks from Kelantan, Malaysia. "We dare because we are right, because it is correct," Mazlan said.
When asked concerning how long this process can run, Hotman Paris Hutapea, Manohara's lawyer in Indonesia, can not be sure about it yet. "We can not says how long it will be done, because the process will be started with the initial letter of demand (somasi). If they want some peacefull agreements, who knows? So the process can be long but also short," Hotman said.
While for the evidence incriminating the Kingdom of Kelantan, already submitted to Indonesian Police HQ. That Evidences, among others results from the medical report, Photos, Witnesses, reports to the embassy, etc. Hotman hopes, all the evidence is sufficient to support the three claims that proposed in Malaysia, civil, divorce, and criminal action.
However, for the civil suit, it does not need the cooperation with the Indonesian embassy. "There are many foreign citizens who already sues in Indonesia, as well as Indonesian citizens who sues in foreign countries. It's just the same, there are no differences if in civil actions.
