Conflicting Reports told to Media, Police on Sogeri Attempt Hold up

Roxana Steljic, the woman who told EMTV News she was the driver of the vehicle, that was involved in the attempted car jacking outside Port Moresby has signed an exclusivity deal with an international media house.

EMTV News today confirmed on camera that Steljic had signed the agreement and will not be speaking to local media on the incident.

Steljic and her family were travelling down from Sogeri, last Saturday when they were involved in an attempted car theft.

The incident was captured on a dashboard camera and uploaded on Social Media site, Facebook.

The signing of the exclusivity deal comes after contradicting details of the ordeal were told to EMTV News, another local TV Station and the Police.

In the EMTV report aired last night, Steljic said she was the one who reversed the vehicle uphill to get away from the carjackers because she wanted to protect her children.

However, in the report aired by the other local TV station, the husband, Vladimir Steljic, spoke on camera that he was the one who drove the vehicle.

EMTV News also received contradicting responses from the two police units investigating the case.

After EMTV News realised that there were conflicting details of the story that ran on both TV stations, we tried contacting Mrs Steljic for a comment on this but she replied in a text message saying she will not be commenting anymore on the incident because she signed an exclusivity deal with licensingibreak.com.

In an off-camera interview with Mrs Streljic at the Ela Beach Hotel, on Sunday 22 October 2017, the day after the alleged incident she provided an edited six-minute video clip of the ordeal.

Starting from where she believed the carjackers started tailing the family, right to where she reversed uphill at full speed before she found enough space to turn the vehicle around and head back to Sogeri.

However, only 52 seconds of the edited clip was uploaded on social media showing the moments leading up to the carjacking attempt.

Today, EMTV News confirmed the story Mrs Steljic told the media about her father- in- law arriving in Papua New Guinea last Friday.

But is yet to confirm if he left the country on Sunday as she alluded to.

This afternoon, we had an encounter with Mr Steljic who denied that his wife was driving.

He then confirmed that the wife signed an exclusivity deal with an international media and asked to be left alone.

After the confrontation, Mrs Steljic sent EMTV a Facebook message denying that she was the driver. And said there was a misunderstanding.

Meanwhile, police investigations into this are continuing.

I love the how reporting is done in PNG… try to skew the reports for your own gain… well done EMTV – good quality reporting… Theckla must be desperate for publicity.

I’m sorry but I think this is a misunderstanding because the reporters at EMTV don’t understand how to interpret English properly. Just admit that you messed up the original story and move on.
