According to the statement to the police, the frogs brought them into the jungle, where 31-year-
The old American woman, Michelle Clements, was hacked and raped, and her frightened boyfriend, Matthew Iowan, couldn\'t do anything but take a look.
Iovane told The Sun: \"We were walking for about an hour and one of the tribesmen showed up in front of us and the other was behind us, \"claims that one of the men wore masks made of feathers and vines.
\"They were dressed in local costumes and looked scary and looked like warpaint, and they came closer before they circled around us.
\"They took my T.
The shirt covered my eyes and I suddenly thought we could be on the menu.
They are very fierce. we are completely at their mercy.
I thought we \'d disappear in the jungle.

This is not the case for those who pick up the pieces with PNG.
The track of Kokoda is the best tourist attraction in the country.
Last year, more than 3100 foreign tourists traveled 96 km long jungle trails and were named the hardest ocean.
Walking level in the world.
Tourism on the track has made it feasible for public transport, air routes, hotels, restaurants and medical centers, employing hundreds of locals and providing food to thousands of people.
But now, the reputation of the people at the cokoda track is broken, and the future of PNG tourism is at stake.
What is even more worrying is that if convicted on all counts, one of the defendants is a minor and could face the death penalty.
But a survey published exclusively on this site in January 29 showed a long list of discrepancies and doubts with the original story.
Now, a 10-day more detailed field investigation at the port of Moresby and the Kokoda circuit in the new capital, has found conclusive evidence confirming some of these suspicions.
The survey can also be found when Iovane and Clement\'s whirlwind six-
A day of adventure in this poor Pacific island nation is over, leaving a bad debt record worth more than 80,000 Kina ($35,000).
On January 6, Iovane and Clemens made the wrong way after landing at Jacksons International Airport, calling Sogeri Lodge, a property located between Port Moresby and the starting point of the Corda track in Owenses point.
The person they spoke to, Alfie Jack, manager of Sogeri Lodge, then drove to the airport to pick them up.
\"They were very friendly and told me they were traveling around the world,\" Jack said . \".
\"But they made me uncomfortable because they kissed and hugged behind the carstop.
When we stopped at the supermarket to get supplies, they also opened their mouths and kissed in the middle of the supermarket.
People ask, why do they do this in public?
Jack also drove the couple to the Kokoda Track Authority (KTA)
The headquarters purchases a trek license.
When asked to nominate their Authorization Guidelines --
One of the 14 guides printed on the back of each trek permit --
The couple said they are experienced hikers and do not need a guide.
When the clerk insisted, they promised to hire a tour guide at the sogery hotel.
But when Sogeri Lodge\'s Australian boss, Warren Bartlett, met the couple the next morning on January 7, he said they were frustrated by the idea of paying for the tour guide.
\"I told them that a Porter wanted 60 Keena ($25)
100 kina per day and tour guide ($43)
If you add a walk-
They need a family allowance of £ 900 in total. 1,300 kina ($388-$560),” he says.
\"But they said they had no money and they couldn\'t afford it.
\"When I asked where they were going to sleep, they said in the hotel with beds, hot and cold water and dining facilities.
\"I said no, only the camp and the basic cabin, you need a sleeping bag, so we rented two sleeping bags,\" batlitt said . \".
\"I asked them if they had a map and they made a brochure that was torn off the magazine, so I said it wasn\'t enough and sold them a map of the waterproof sleeves.
They are completely unprepared and stupid to take a big risk.
\"At the beginning of the Kokoda circuit, a quiet village covered up the hardships and dangers of the long journey.

He said there was no reply from Iovane.
\"They owe us more than 900 Keena ($387),” he says.
\"I\'m frustrated and annoyed that rogue hikers like this will sting us like this.
Alfie Jack added: \"Before leaving, they said \'Be vigilant if you don\'t hear from us within four days \'.
I asked myself, why did they say that?
\"Break the taboo Iovane and Clemens for the next four days, hike through the lush green jungle of the Kokoda Track.

The problems with Iovane and clemen have not changed because of what they call sexual abuse.
As claimed, this is not a random attack either.

But nothing matters but running away, so we run away . \"
He also said they were chased by wild dogs.
However, among the dozens of locals interviewed by reporters in Kokoda Trail, no one said they had seen wild dogs in the area.
The couple, exhausted, hungry and full of soil, finally reached the picturesque village of Alala, surrounded by fog.
The first villagers to help them were Kila Eddie.
\"They said they were robbed by the porter,\" he said . \".
\"Yes, they were wearing shoes, no, they didn\'t say anything about rape.

\"On the trek, he was in Alola and needed to use medivac immediately,\" said Batia . \".
\"I said, \'OK, I\'ll send you a helicopter \'.
I asked him where the Porter was and he said he would not say anything about the Porter until he arrived at Port Moresby, but he needed help and his wife was very bad.
Batia added: \"I am happy with everything I have done to get them out of there.
But if I knew it was just a cut on my fingers, I wouldn\'t send a helicopter, which was too expensive for us.
I think we are cheated. they are not honest with us.
KTA\'s accounting department estimates that the entire incident has cost the organization 80,000 Kina.
\"We are in a financial situation and we are in a very, very bad situation,\" said Batia . \".

And our management training.
We can\'t do anything.

No response from Iovane.
However, he did send KTA an email
The email requested \"full refund of the hiking license fee to my bank account as soon as possible . . . . . . 350 kina per person (

After stitching Clements\'s fingers, he gave her a Pap test.

\"There are no vaginal scars, vaginal tears or bruises on the upper part of the thigh.
\"She did not say she was raped,\" he added.

She didn\'t trust me and wouldn\'t allow me to do a full check.
She refused to give me a history of events that would allow me to make a thorough diagnosis.
She hardly spoke, nor did she speak.
However, there is a lot to be said about Iovane.

After the treatment of Clements, Dr. Sios proposed the bill of 1,600 kina to the couple ($690).
\"I told them it was a private medical institution, but he said they had no money,\" the doctor said . \".
Dr. Sios worried about their pain and let the couple go.
In the past two months, he sent several payment reminders to Iovane, but there was no response from Iovane.
The doctor said, \"I feel cheated . \"
\"You know, I had a packet of cookies here.

\"In practice, if the file is not ready within three months, we will make an application to dismiss the action.
\"If the police did file a file with the prosecutor before April 20 and the judge did agree to bring the case to trial, Geita or the prosecutor could call Iovane and Clemens to appear in court to testify.
If the couple does not comply, they may be extradited under the provisions of the bilateral treaty signed by PNG, Britain and the United States.

The people there are very, very friendly and attach great importance to the contributions of hikers . . . . . . Until now, they have been taken good care.
