Father Marcel Smit: "It was an accumulation of events through which we decided to leave. But it was mainly fear. We have offended the Malaysian authorities by our criticism of the police investigation into the death of Ivana. "
He tells that the Malaysian lawyer who assisted them in Kuala Lumpur made promises to the local police without the consent of the family. Among other things that there would be no more talk with the media. ,, From that moment on we felt really powerless. What else could we do as private individuals there? "
,, It was clear that they wanted to leave us and that was very unpleasant. There was also a police car with four agents in front of our hotel. Moreover, no cooperation was given in the meantime, there was no openness about the progress in the investigation. I'm afraid I've been too open and honest in public. "
