Guardian to prove innocence in sexual abuse case

Fadley Faisal

A 31-year-old local man yesterday denied five charges in the Intermediate Court of having explicitly exposed himself to minors under his care.

Judge Pengiran Hajah Norismayanti binti Pengiran Haji Ismail fixed the trial to run from May 3 to 11 and ordered the defendant to wait further in remand. DPP Nurual Fitri bimti Kiprawi’s charges allege that the defendant had sexually abused two boys and a girl, while he was a guardian to the victims, by exposing himself to them and making sexual gestures on five different occasions in 2019 and 2020 at a house and in a car.
