An American fashion model, Sarah Goolden, claims that son of the former Afghan defense minister sexually abused her after she rejected him, the New York Post reported.
Goolden accuses Hamed Wardak of sexual abuse against her during a trip to Miami on July 4th weekend 2018.
According to the report, Wardak, a Georgetown University grad whose father, Abdul Rahim Wardak, served in former President Hamid Karzai’s cabinet until 2012, is a club-going partier who’s not shy about spreading his money around, said Goolden, who met Hamed through a friend a decade ago when she was a Washington D.C. college student.
Goolden’s claims are “entirely false,” said Wardak’s lawyer, Alexis Fields, who accused the model of “attempting to manipulate the current political and anti-immigrant climate to her tactical advantage.”
Wardak — who in 2009 inked a $360 million Defense Department contract to transport Army supplies in Afghanistan — falsely accused her of cheating, at one point “screaming and pulling her by her hair” and yanking her out of bed, according to the lawsuit, quoted by the New York Post.
