Gang rape: Duo get 18 years each

24th May, 2018


TAWAU: Two Indonesian nationals were each sentenced to 18 years’ jail for gang-raping a 19-year-old last year.

The two – Mohd Supardie Wahidin Abbas, 18 and Basir Bambang, 26 – changed their plea to guilty after the prosecution produced two witnesses in the trial at the Sessions Court here.

The trial was before High Court Deputy Registrar Amir Shah Amir Hassan who sat as Sessions Court Judge. The court was told that the heinous crime took place at about 4.40pm on Oct 6 last year in Taman Bukit Tawau, near here.

Mohd Supardie had got to know the victim through WeChat social network two months before the crime. The accused had persuaded the victim to ride on his motorcycle purportedly to meet his family.

Instead, Mohd Supardie took the victim to an oil palm plantation where he and Basir raped her, while a third person, identified as Andi, watched the girl being repeatedly raped.

The victim was saved by passersby who heard her screams and she lodged a police report the following day.

The crime is punishable with a jail term of not less than 10 years and not more than 30. In mitigation, the two accused said they had repented and swore not to repeat it.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Wan Muhammad Fitri Wan Azizan who prosecuted requested for a deterrent sentence in the name of public interest and considering the trauma experienced by the victim.

The Judge ordered the sentence to run from the date of the duo’s arrest.

The accused did not possess any travel documents. They were ordered to be referred to the Immigration authorities for deportation upon completion of their sentences.
