SHAH ALAM, Sept 19 – A Myanmar was sentenced to 15 years’ jail today, by the Sessions Court here for raping his compatriot’s three-year-old daughter, two years ago.
Myo Nyunt, 36, who was found guilty of the offence was also ordered to be given three strokes of the rotan.
Judge Rozi Bainun said the defence had failed to raise a reasonable doubt on the prosecution’s case.
The court also ordered the factory worker to serve the sentence from the date of arrest on Oct 28, 2013.
Myo raped his friend’s daughter at a factory in Sungai Rasah here between 11am and 5pm on Oct 27, 2013, while helping to babysit the girl.
The prosecution was handled by Deputy Public Prosecutor Raya Noor Husnita Mohd Radzi while Myo was represented by Ahmad Mukmin Aimi Azmi.
Earlier, the victim’s sobbing mother urged the court to impose a deterrent sentence on Myo. – Bernama
