The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

MELAKA: A fa­ther of six pleaded not guilty in the Ses­sions Court in Ayer Keroh here yes­ter­day to a charge of rap­ing a 12-year-old girl, three years ago.

The man aged 32, al­legedly com­mit­ted the of­fence on his younger brother’s friend in a house in Jasin here, be­tween 1pm and 4pm, some­time in Fe­bru­ary 2014.

The ac­cused who worked as a co­conut plucker faces Sec­tion 376(2) of the Pe­nal Code, which car­ries a max­i­mum jail term of 30 years and li­able to whip­ping, on con­vic­tion.

Judge Meor Su­laiman Ah­mad Tarmizi al­lowed the ac­cused bail of RM15,000 with one surety, and set Dec 13 for re-men­tion of the case for sub­mis­sion of doc­u­ments and ap­point­ment of lawyer.

The pros­e­cu­tion was han­dled by pros­e­cut­ing of­fi­cer ASP Nora Yaa­cob, while the ac­cused was un­rep­re­sented. - Ber­nama
