KAJANG: A petty trader has claimed trial to having sex with his daughter, who is 25 years his junior.

Teoh Boon Huang, 46, was charged in the Sessions Court here Tuesday with having sex with the 21-year-old in  their home in Taman Cheras Perdana, at 3am on Oct 23.

When asked for his plea in Mandarin, Teoh was seen hesitating, requiring the interpreter to prompt him three times before he pleaded not guilty.

Teoh, who was wearing a beige shirt and brown cargo pants, remained silent and stared at the floor throughout the proceedings.

He faces up to 20 years prison and whipping, if convicted under Section 376B of the Penal Code, for incest.

Under Section 376B, a person is said to have committed incest if he has sexual intercourse with another person whose relationship to him is such that he is not permitted to marry her under the law, religion or custom.

Deputy public prosecutor Siaw Chooi Chin urged the court not to offer bail.

Counsel Douglas Yee did not object as he said his client could not afford bail anyway.

Judge Nor Hazani Hamzah denied bail and set Dec 24 for next mention.

The Star reported on Thursday that the man had allegedly been having sex with his daughter in their home in Kajang whenever his wife was not around.

An uncle, who runs the hair salon where the daughter had been working, suspected something amiss after seeing steamy text messages exchanged between them.

The daughter then admitted to having consensual sex with her father since she was 18.
