Two school security guards charged with sexually abusing primary schoolboys


PETALING JAYA: Two security guards have been charged in a Sessions Court here with sexually abusing two primary schoolboys here last month.

L. Joy Lawrence, 38, and Mokhtaruddin Abdul Manan, 57, are both facing two counts each of sodomising an eight-year-old boy and a 10-year-old boy and another two charges each of performing oral sex on the boys.

The offence was allegedly committed at the school's guardhouse and toilet between 7am and 7.30am in February.

Lawrence and Mokhtaruddin were charged under Section 377C of the Penal Code for carnal intercourse against the order of nature without consent.

Both later claimed trial before judge Hilmiah Yusof on Monday. The duo appeared calm after the charges were read to them.

Mokhtaruddin's wife immediately rushed to her husband who was in the dock, and kissed his cheek as soon as she entered the courtroom.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Shafiq Hashim did not offer bail, saying that it was a serious offence.

Lawrence and Mokhtaruddin were unrepresented and did not make any plea.

Judge Hilmiah then granted the prosecution's application and set Apr 3 for mention pending appointment of counsels.
