Man who raped own sister sentenced to 45 years' jail


A man who raped his own sister and fathered a child with her was sentenced to 45 years in jail and 30 lashes by the Kota Baru Sessions Court on Tuesday. The 23-year-old pleaded guilty to raping his sister when she was 15 years old in February and April 2015 and again in March 2016 at their house in Gong Datok, Pasir Puteh, Kelantan. Deputy Public Prosecutor Fahrul Razi Zainal Abidin suggested the maximum punishment be given to teach the man a lesson. "The accused took advantage of his sister and even made her pregnant. This act is not only a disgrace to society but it is damned by God," he said. Judge Ahmad Bazli Bahruddin sentenced the accused to 15 years' jail and 10 whippings for each charge, to be served sequentially. The man was found out when the sister gave birth to a baby girl on Dec 8.
