KUALA LUMPUR - The woman in the "sperm abuse" suit will not allow her son to meet his Bosnian father.

Melanie (not her real name) said she would never expose the three-year-old child to Ervin Ahbabovic, 41, whom she alleged was abusive and violent.

She said it was to protect the child's safety.

"For him (Ahbabovic) to say I needed sex six times a day, was materialistic and liked white men is humiliating and devastating.

"This has caused a psychological impact on me and will remain for life," the 29-year-old told a press conference here, arranged by the Voice of Women Association on Friday.

Relating her relationship with Ahbabovic, who is a Malaysian Permanent Resident, Melanie said he assaulted her a few months after they were together in 2008.

"I wanted to leave him a long ago and this is why I did not put his name in our child's birth certificate," she added, saying that the man threatened to harm her and ruin her career when she wanted to break-up with him.

"Finally, I had the courage to leave him after he refused to let me attend my grandmother's funeral last year," said Melanie, denying his claim that she was seeing an American professor.

Asked if she still loves him, she said: "Well, I think after knowing who he is, I was very frightened and the feeling just dissipated."

The Voice of Women Association president Chew Hoong Ling said the "superior sperm" remark made by Ahbabovic was an insult to Malaysian men.

She urged other victims to come forward and the association would help as much as possible.
