Unprofessional, inappropriate and unethical is how a female client yesterday described her massage by accused molester Zoran Zivanovic after he allegedly indecently assaulted her during treatment.
The description came from one of the 56-year-old's alleged seven victims.
The woman, a trained massage therapist, told the District Court jury she went to Mr Zivanovic for severe pain in her buttock muscles and had been aware the myotherapist would get close to her groin area during treatment.
But she said he pulled her underpants fully down and indecently touched her three times. She denied the suggestion the incidents were repeated accidents.
She said Mr Zivanovic then mounted the table near her head and pressed his crutch against her while massaging her back, at one point so close, she could feel his breath on her exposed private parts.
She had flinched, moved and told him it was "a bit weird" before pulling her pants up and asking him to finish.
Mr Zivanovic allegedly told her he was so passionate about his work, he sometimes got lost in it.
Asked why she did not say anything more at the time, the woman said she had not wanted her young son to think something was wrong.
She said she was a single, working mother who had an unpleasant experience but was not physically harmed and she had wanted to put it behind her.
She did not see Mr Zivanovic again.She suggested his comment about getting lost in his work was aimed at justifying his behaviour.
