几十年来,莫巴沙尔.贾韦德.阿克巴一直是印度公共生活中的显要人物。

An Indian government minister accused of sexual misconduct by at least 12 women has said the claims are “wild and baseless” and filed a defamation lawsuit against one of his alleged victims.

而现在这位印度政府部长至少被12名女性指控性侵,这位部长声称这些指控“胡搅蛮缠且毫无根据”,并对其中一名受害者提起诽谤诉讼。

Mobashar Jawed Akbar, India’s junior foreign minister, returned from government business in Nigeria on Sunday to face mounting allegations he harassed or abused employees during his previous career as a journalist.

上周日,印度初级外长莫巴沙尔.贾韦德.阿克巴从尼日利亚政府事务中返程回国。回国后,他即将面越来越多的指控,这些指控声称他在过去的记者职业生涯中骚扰或虐待员工。

“The allegations of misconduct made against me are false and fabricated, spiced up by innuendo and malice,” he said in a statement on Sunday. “Accusation without evidence has become a viral fever among some sections. Whatever be the case, now that I have returned, my lawyers will look into these wild and baseless allegations in order to decide our future course of legal action.”

他在周日的一份声明中说:“这些说我行为不当的指控根本就是假的,是凭空捏造的,这肯定是受到了含沙射影和恶意事件的影响。”“凭空捏造指控已成为一些部门流行病。不管怎样,既然我回来了,我的律师就会调查这些疯狂和毫无根据的指控,并在此基础上确定未来我们的法律行动方针。”

On Monday, he filed a criminal defamation case against the journalist Priya Ramani, the first of the women to name him as her alleged abuser.

周一,他对记者普里娅.拉马尼提起刑事诽谤诉讼。拉马尼是第一位指控他是施害者的女性。

The lawsuit names Ramani as the sole accused and says she “intentionally put forward malicious, fabricated and salacious” allegations to harm Akbar’s reputation.

该诉讼将拉马尼列为唯一的被告,并表示她“故意提出恶意、捏造和淫秽”的指控,损害了阿克巴的声誉。

Ramani responded in a statement that “rather than seek to engage with the serious allegations that many women have made against him, [Akbar] seeks to silence them with intimidation and harassment”. She would fight any charges, she said.

拉马尼在一份声明中回应说,“阿克巴并没有因为这些妇女对他提出的指控表现出任何悔意,而是试图用恐吓和骚扰来压制她们的声音”。她说,她会反对任何诉讼。
