According to a press release, Representative Sloh notes the action and its attending video have both embarrassed all civilized people especially, Sinoe citizens around the world.

One of the victims in the video reportedly died from the torture and beating.
Rep. Sloh apologizes to the victims’ families, and all women around the world for the disgrace the barbaric act has imposed on them.
He says in this civilized days, only person suffering from chronic insanity and irreversible mental derangement can even think of meting out such abnormal and violent social behavior against any human being, let alone women.
Refuting media reports that the incident took place in his district; he adds that no matter where this ugly incident occurred, it must be condemned by all civilized human beings.
He also regrets what he calls very poor judgment employed by those who published the video.
