‘Daddy’ gets eight years’ jail for sexually abusing niece

The Intermediate Court on Saturday handed an eight-year-jail sentence to a 51-year-old local man who pleaded guilty earlier to four charges of outraging the modesty of his young niece.

Judge Pengiran Masni binti Pengiran Haji Bahar condemned the defendant’s actions after taking into account his continuous acts of sexual abuse and the trauma he had caused the victim.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Nurul Fitri binti Kiprawi revealed in court that the man, whose identity is withheld to protect the victim, had been given the trust to take care of his wife’s niece, who is the victim, and her siblings while the parents go to work.
