Suzy wrote, "It didn't seem like there was much I could do, as this case was still being looked into."

When photos were being taken, 20 different men touched all over my body."She said, "I'm still going through a tough time due to that incident, but people around me have continued to encourage me to fight against it. By telling the world about it, I believe this sort of incident would happen less in the future. That is why I decided to openly speak about it."
