The Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG)on Saturday belied the claim of a 39-year old New Zealander woman of her sex ordeal in the hands of a Filipino martial arts instructor during her visit to the country last February 2011.
PNP-CIDG investigators digging into the case of Mary Elizabeth Jones, a British-born New Zealander, who claimed that she was robbed, kidnapped, badly beaten and forced into prostitution for five and a half months, were all fabricated and that what she said to a New Zealand newspaper were merely a product of her imagination.
Jones alleged ordeal was published by the New Zealand Herald News on Sept. 20, 2011.
PNP-CIDG chief, Police Director Samuel Pagdilao Jr. said that contrary to Jones claim that she arrived in the country in October 2010 and was kept as sex slave for more than five months, documentary evidence provided by the Centralized Query Support System of the Bureau of Immigration dated Sept. 23, 2011 explicitly showed that the said Kiwi woman only stayed in the country for 78 days.
She arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and Feb. 3, 2011 and left the country on April 12.
The 27-year old Filipino martial arts instructor, Mark David Dudoit of Banate, Iloilo, whom she referred in her story as the one who forced her into sex slavery, denied abusing Jones.
Jones on Feb. 18, 2011 filed a complaint at the CIDG’s Women and Children Protection Division against Dudoit, but the results on the medical exams disproved her allegations of physical abuses as it revealed that there were no external signs of recent application of any form of trauma.
Jones was brought to Heaven for Women, a temporary shelter run by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) for women who are victims of violence, the following day.
During her admission, she was subjected to physical examination and her dental report indicated that she has complete set of teeth.
The results further belied her allegation that she lost several teeth when she was beaten badly while in captivity. Her allegations that she was pregnant, Dudoit were also repudiated by the results of examinations that said there were no signs of abortion.
CIDG-WCPD chief, Police Supt. Emma Libunao said that Jones case could be considered a case of fatal attraction. “She was dumped by Dudoit when he found out that she was a nut case,” said Libunao. (PNA)
