On August 1st 2007, Teganita posted a statement HERE about an unnamed Malaysian senior minister in an alleged rape case of an Indonesian Maid named Robengah who was then currently under Migrant Care investigation.

There was no official response about that allegation for a long time. I am not sure if Teganita (in the 3. 5yrs since that report) has received any official response either.

In late December 2009, Rocky Bru, Sakmongkol and Another Brick in the Wall also blogged about a said Wikileaks series of diplomatic whisper in 2007 regarding the alleged rape of an Indonesian maid by a Cabinet minister then.

Note: There was NO reaction from the parties concerned after these were posted in cyberspace. In fact, SILENCE prevailed till 5th January, 2011.

On 5th January 2011, The Malaysian Insider reported that a representative of a PKR-linked group called Malaysian Youth Solidarity (SAMM), Norazizi Aziz, lodged the report based on a document that has been circulating on the Internet since late last month.

Hours later on the same day, The Malaysian Insider reported HERE that Minister of Information, Communications and Culture Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim denied the allegation today that he had raped his maid in 2007.

“I deny every allegation made, whether it involves raping any individual four years ago or other accusations published by wild writers on the internet or any political party,” said Rais in a statement published through state news agency Bernama.

Today, The Star and Free Malaysia Today reported that the Indonesian maid, said to be the rape victim of Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim, has denied the allegation. Both sources quoted THIS SITE without giving the exact link.

Anyway, I searched the site and found the exact report AT THIS LINK in the article titled Migrant Care Stop Advokasi Pemerkosaan TKI Atas Permintaan Korban written by Elvan Dany Sutrisno. Excerpt from the report:
