Beautiful, possibly thuggish actress Marcella Zalianty, the last moments of a celebrity goat, and creative use of cutlery.
Actress Marcella Zalianty was arrested on 4th December on charges of arranging for the kidnap and assault of Agung Setiawan, an employee at Marcella's interior design company PT Kreasi Anak Bangsa, who owed money to Marcella and had missed a deadline for making an installment payment of 30 million rupiah.
Agung Setiawan claims he was kidnapped, held for one night, and then taken to Marcella's office, and during this ordeal beaten up, tortured with lit cigarettes, and even sodomised with a spoon by several men, - known dubious characters Ananda Mikola and Moreno Suprapto, - at the behest of Marcella Zalianty.
Marcella, who was born in 1980 in Jakarta, a girl of mixed Chinese and Batak extraction, and has appeared in some painfully named tv soap operas like "Cerita Cinta" and "Target Ciuman", and also features in the stalled half-made movie Lastri, admits to demanding that Agung pay up on his debts to her, but denies ordering any kidnapping, or having any involvement in violence towards him. l6
Currently Marcella Zalianty is being held at the Central Jakarta police headquarters, and her case has received a huge amount of national media attention.
On the Muslim holy day of sacrifice, Idul Adha, 9th December, Marcella provided a goat for sacrifice at the police station, and later distribution of its meat. As the goat, possibly called Daisy, was being slaughtered reporters and camera crews were said to have swarmed around it, filming and photographing its dying moments, and later while it was being sliced up - but they showed no interest in the other, non-famous goats, and cows, that were sacrificed at around the same time. tempo
