It was in August 2017 when one news shocked the world. It was first time of its kind in the history when a man from Malaysia has been charged with over 600 sexual assaults on his daughter and faced a jail term of over 12,000 years after he found guilty.
“He faces a prison sentence of over 12,000 years”, said a senior prosecutor. For each charge of sodomy, the man can be punished with a maximum jail term of 20 years, as well as caning. He faces a rape charge that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years, and 30 other charges of sexual assault, each punishable by up to 20 years in jail.
He sold investment products and was arrested on July 26 after the girl’s mother lodged a police report. The offenses were allegedly committed when the daughter was living with her father.
