Her appearance dispells more than a week of gruesome reports about an
alleged razor attack by a government official's jealous wife
A healthy, happy DJ Ano appears on TV3 on Wednesday.
TELEVISION presenter DJ Ano on Wednesday put to rest more than a week of rumours that she had been attacked with razors by the wife of a high-ranking government official and had fled to Vietnam to recover from her injuries.
The TV3 presenter, whose real name is Suon Pheakdei, appeared live on her network in full health and showing no signs of the alleged 83 razor cuts that had formed the substance of the lurid rumours.
In addition to refuting stories of the attack, which began circulating more than a week ago when she failed to turn up for work, Ano said she has asked for a police investigation to determine who might be responsible for spreading false information about her.
"I will file a complaint against those who started the rumours," she said. "When I heard the information about me, I had no idea what to do."
Kha Puon Keomony, director general of TV3, said Ano had taken time off from work to visit relatives abroad but that at her request, he had not released the information to the media.
"I didn't tell anyone," he said. "She asked me not to speak about her."
