What is going on with the world? Does this man think he’s gonna get away unpunished for raping? How dare you put your hands on an underage kid!
34-year-old Ahmad Faizal Ab Razab who is a part-time worker at an ecotourism centre in Raub, Pahang was charged with raping a 14-year-old girl twice when she was vacationing with her family at Lata Lembik Eco Park in Raub.
He was also charged with sodomizing the victim at the same location and has been sentenced to 28 years in jail and 18 strokes of the cane after pleading guilty to raping the minor.
The incident reportedly happened between December 8 – December 10, 2017, when the victim was on a five-day family vacation at the ecotourism centre.
According to sources, the victim, who is from Cyberjaya, did not talk about the trauma she had suffered when it happened. She only told her parents about it a month later after they asked her about her changed demeanor.
In shock, her parents quickly lodged a police report and Faizal was then arrested on January 27.
After the three charged were read out to Faizal, who was unrepresented at the Sessions Court by Judge Datin M Kunasundary, he pleaded guilty. The Judge ordered his jail sentence to begin from the day he was arrested, January 27, 2018.
It is also reported that during the hearing, the accused apparently appealed for leniency saying that he has a wife and four children to support, besides a younger sibling who is studying at a public university.
“I regret my action and promise not to do it again.
“If ever I am caught again for the same offence, I am prepared to receive the maximum sentence without pleading.”
However, Judge M. kunasundary was unrelenting in her sentencing, noting that the court placed the rights of the victim and interest of the public above the accused’s rights even though he was a first offender.
“If the accused had thought about his wife and children, surely he would have been mindful and not allow his sexual urges to control him.”
Very well said! He needs to be punished! Why should he be given leniency despite raping the poor girl TWICE! You not only raped her, you sodomized her and you still had the audacity to appeal for leniency? Oh no, mister, you are going to spend the next 28 years behind bars!
