identified as Henry Alafu (pictured right), while on holiday in Bali
with her family last Christmas. Speaking with Channel 9’s A Current
Affair, Audrey said she met Henry at a party and a few days later, he
called to tell her there was a party happening at a villa and asked her
if she wanted to come. She agreed. But instead of taking her to the
party, Henry allegedly took her to where he was staying and there, he
allegedly raped her.
“He went from a man to a monster. I
can’t quite describe the feeling, the sadness, to know what was about

says they did not do enough.
Ms Pekin’s father, Karl, said. It’s incredibly frustrating… They could
have picked him up – he was still a threat. It’s clear who he was,
clear where he was, so we don’t know why he wasn’t picked up.’
Alafu’s friends were arrested in a raid on the property on January 14,
