Jail, lashes for predatory dad

The Intermediate Court on Thursday imposed a sentence of six years’ jail and four strokes of the cane on a 34-year-old Malaysian man for sexually abusing his 12-year-old daughter, twice.

Prosecutor Atiyyah Abas told the court that the defendant fondled the victim at their flathouse sometime between January and September.

The family shares a common bedroom in a two-bedroom flat, with the other room used as a storage space. The wife only came to learn of the sexual attacks after being informed by the victim.
