Towards Lesser Crime In JB (13)

Rape (2)

A semi-paralysed Felda settler Romle Ariffin, 56, had pleaded guilty to offence he committed at his house in Felda Inas, Kulaijaya, on several occasions, between March 14 and April 4.

The wheelchair-bound man was sentenced to 17 years’ imprisonment and 10 strokes of the cane for raping his 15-year-old teenage daughter several times while tending to him.
The girl had been looking after him.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Jasmee Hameeza Jaafar prosecuted while the accused was not represented.

In passing judgment on April 19, 2011, the Johor Bahru Sessions Court judge Nu’aman Mahmud Zuhudi noted that the accused took advantage on his position and his own flesh and blood to satisfy his sexual urges.

Romle, who was charged under Section 376B of the Penal Code, should have protected his daughter instead of using her to fulfil his lust.


Another father, a 26-year-old special school teacher in Pagoh was charged at the Sessions Court last October.

He was charged with raping his 4-year-old stepdaughter in Taman Pagoh Jaya, Johor, at 9pm on September  22.

The teacher was then taken to the magistrate's court where he was charged with assaulting his 28-year old wife by suffocating, slapping and punching her in the same house at 3am on March 25.

Deputy public prosecutor Ratinah Abu Bakar prosecuted while counsel Maniam K. Marappan represented the accused.


 Muar Rapist Dad Gets 25 Years' Jail

An odd-job worker in Muar, Johor was found guilty of raping his daughter, then 17, since 2007.

The sessions court has imposed a 25-year jail term and 10 strokes for each offence and ordered the sentences to run concurrently from the date of arrest on Jan 21 this year.

He was found guilty of raping his daughter at a house in Lenga at 8am in 2007, at another house in Pagoh between midnight and 4am in August last year and at the same house at 4am in October last year.

Deputy public prosecutor Zairani Tugiran urged the court to impose a deterrent sentence on the father of three.

The court was earlier told that the victim had stayed at a boarding school but when she returned home, she was raped when her mother was at work in a factory or while she was asleep.

The court was also told the girl was warded in Muar Hospital for psychiatric observation because of depression.
