An Asian man has been handed a 29-year jail term for sexually defiling his biological daughter and also forcing his eldest son to sleep with their mother.
The 41-year-old man was sentenced on Monday, October 4 after he was found guilty of the charges against him.
It was alleged that the man has been having carnal knowledge of his daughter from when she was nine to 15 while forcing his eldest son who was then 16 to have sex with their mother.
The man whose name was not mentioned but is investigated to be a technician told the court he violated his daughter to avoid her from having sex with outsiders.
14 more charges, 10 of which are for sexual offences against his daughter, and three of which are for instigating his son to sexually penetrate his mother on a second occasion, were read before Justice Dedar Singh Gill, Singapore court.
While the names of the victims were meant to remain a secret, the accused said he wanted his daughter to remain single and by his side. It was revealed that the family of four had lived in a flat in the north of Singapore back in 2015.
Reports had it that the assaulted girl who is now 16 years old was 11 when her father asked her to wash her privates’ parts at his watch.
The girl complied, knowing that the man wanted to sexually assault her.
In 2017, when the girl was 13, her father reportedly raped her in her bedroom, persisting in the act despite the girl’s cries of pain. He did not use protection. The girl confided in her elder brother, who asked her not to give in to their father.
The man is said to have threatened his son never to mention to anyone about the occurrences. Also according to reports, the boy decided to remain mute in order not to ruin the family’s reputation.
GISTSMATE learnt that in 2018 when the family had relocated to a new apartment, the accused and his wife had alcohol and the intoxicated woman fell asleep on her bed. At the time, their son was playing a game on a console when his father asked him to rape his mother.
The teenage boy who according to reports was a virgin at that time refused to act on his father’s repeated instructions. Afraid of being beaten, the boy complied. As he did not know how to commit the act, his father “helped” him.
After some time, the daughter who had attended a talk about unprotected sex and sexually transmitted infections in school began to pick offence with her father’s act.
“After attending this talk, on several occasions, the victim cried when the accused tried to have sex with her. The accused told the victim that he had sex with (her) because he was afraid that she would have sex with other boys. The accused also told the victim that he just wanted to have sex with her,” said the prosecution.
The girl reportedly fled to her aunt’s house and opened up on all that has been happening between her and their father.
The elder woman upon learning of the situation, lodged a Police report on 2 November 2019. It was at this time that the man’s offences against his son were uncovered.
