Putri Indonesia Nadine Chandra says she is ready to be questioned by police over the bikini scandal.
Nadine wore a bikini at the Miss Universe contest in America last month and was reported to the police by the womens' wing of the Islam Defenders' Front, the Mujahidah FPI, see Nadine Chandrawinata. However in a press conference in Jakarta on the 15th Nadine said that if called to the police station, as a good citizen, she was willing and able to give an explanation.
Nadine admitted that upon hearing the news of her reporting to the police she was somewhat stressed but said she couldn't understand what she had done wrong, she was only representing Indonesia to the best of her abilities.
A representative from the Putri Indonesia organisation (YPI), Putri Kuswisnuwardhani, said the YPI would provide Nadine with a lawyer, and questioned why differences of opinion on the matter of appropriate dress should become a concern for the police.
