MONITORING (SW) – A U.S. fashion model has charged Hamed Wardak the son of former defense minister, Abdul Rahim Wardak of stalking and raping her.
Sarah Goolden accuses Hamed Wardak of attacking her twice during a trip the two took to Miami on July 4th weekend 2018, according to a suit she filed against him in Manhattan Federal Court lawsuit. Goolden said met Hamed through a friend a decade ago when she was a Washington D.C. college student.
“He bought me gifts,” Goolden, 29, told The Post. “Of course, he always told me there were no strings attached. He uses his money as a tool to influence almost everybody in his life.”
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.”
According to the report, 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.
The next day she tried to leave, but was thwarted when the building’s elevators stopped working, Goolden alleged.
