PETALING JAYA: Netizens say the 48 years in jail a divorcee was sentenced to for incest were insufficient.
“Only 48 years? He’s only 36 and another 48 will make him only 84! The devil like this even a grandfather will do the same thing to other innocent kids when he is released!” said Facebook user Catherine Vanessa Liew.
Norbahira Mohamad Nor also lamented about the 48 years’ jail sentence.
“48 years only? Why not max sentence 20 years times 600++ rapes? Let him rot in jail,” she said.
On Friday, the man, who is a unit trust agent and father of three girls pleaded guilty to 623 charges of sexually abusing and sodomising his 15-year-old daughter. He was jailed a total of 48 years and ordered to be whipped 24 times for committing incest, physical sexual assault without intercourse, abusing, neglecting, sexually abusing the child and for sodomising the victim.
Rachel Thong said the jail term was insufficient for the crimes he had committed on his own daughter.
Yurni Emilia concurred and wished that the man was jailed for a longer term.
“The trauma he caused on the girl isn’t worth 48 years,” she said.
“Wow just 48 years? Torture him la. Why so light the punishment? What the hell,” Amareena Jayabalam said, adding that the victim’s life would never be the same again.
Chan Chong Meng said 48 years for 628 charges were considered lenient.
“With good behaviour he will be out in 24. It should be at least 80 years with 48 strokes of the rotan,” he said.-
