The unit trust agent, who shocked the nation with his alleged heinous acts of sodomising and raping his own daughter 600 times and sexually assaulting her 30 times, faces over 12,000 years in jail if convicted.
- Sexually assaulted daughter for 6 consecutive months from Jan to Jun, three times a day – morning, afternoon, night
- Bail denied for fear he would intimidate victim
- Attorney General confirmed the country’s first such case
The charge sheet was so long that it took the court two days to read it out.
According to the charge sheet, the man now branded as “monster dad” allegedly sodomised and raped his 15-year-old daughter in their apartment in Sungai Way, Petaling Jaya, for six consecutive months between January and June this year.
He allegedly sexually assaulted her several times a day – between 6am and 7am, from 1pm to 2pm and between 11pm and 12.30am.
The accused faces 599 charges for committing sodomy under Section 377C of the Penal Code which provides a maximum of 20 years’ of imprisonment and also whipping for each charge, upon conviction.
He is also charged with committing incest under Section 376A of the same Code and punishable under Section 376B(1) of the Code.
The divorcee is also accused of 30 counts of physical sexual assault without intercourse from Jul 11 to 20 and is charged under Section 14/16 of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017.
He also faces a charge of abusing, neglecting and sexually abusing the child between Jan 1 and Jul 21. The charge falls under Section 31(1)(a) of the Child Act 2016 and is punishable under Section 31(1)(b) of the Act.
The man pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
Deputy public prosecutor Nordalina Ali asked that the man be denied bail for fear that he would intimidate the victim. She said she was concerned he would harass the girl and her mother, who lodged the police report against the man.
Pleading for bail, the man said he needed to support his parents and to pay his car monthly instalment. Judge Yong Zarida refused bail and fixed Sep 18 for the next mention.
During both days, none of his family members was present in court.
The nation is reeling from shock over the country’s first such case, with reactions even from the prime minister’s wife and Minister of Women, Family and Community Development Dato’ Sri Rohani Abdul Karim.
