Paul Yong rape trial: Bedsheet with suspected semen stains found, says cop


Ipoh

IPOH: A bedsheet with suspected semen stains was found in the house of former Perak executive council member Paul Yong, the High Court here was told.

Police forensic field investigating officer Inspector V. Simon said eight spots believed to be semen were found on a white bedsheet at the scene of the alleged incident.

Insp Simon, who is attached to the Perak police contingent headquarters, was testifying in the rape trial of Yong on Monday (July 12) before Judge Datuk Abdul Wahab Mohamed.

Besides the bedsheet, Insp Simon said two swab samples were taken of stains, also believed to be semen, on the side of a bed and on the floor.

“Also taken from the scene were four strands of hair, a mop, a pair of grey men's underwear, a pair of pink panties, blue bra, blue shorts, white round-necked T-shirt, a brown T-shirt, and black shorts with red stripes,” he said.

Insp Simon is the 14th witness to testify in the trial.

The trial continues on Tuesday (July 13).

On Aug 23, 2019, Yong claimed trial at the Ipoh Sessions Court to raping his then 23-year-old maid.

The offence was allegedly committed in a room on the top floor of his house in Meru Desa Park on July 7 that year, between 8.15pm and 9.15pm.
