SHAH ALAM: A man who allegedly sodomised and raped his daughter 600 times is expected to be charged in the Special Court on Child Sexual Crimes in Putrajaya tomorrow.
The 37-year-old suspect, who allegedly committed the atrocious acts over the past two years, had been under police remand since his arrest on July 26.
If found guilty, he can face at least up to 3,000 years imprisonment as well as whipping for sodomising his daughter 599 times and one count of rape.
This does not include other charges of sexual assault and abuse.
Selangor Criminal Investigation Department Senior Assistant Commissioner Fadzil Ahmat said the suspect will face a total of 632 counts under the Penal Code, Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017 (SOACA 2017), and Children's Act 2016.
"The suspect will be charged tomorrow with 599 counts of committing carnal intercourse against the order of nature without consent, and one count under Section 376A of the Penal Code for rape.
"He will also face 30 counts under Section 14 of the SOACA 2017 (physical sexual assault without sexual intercourse), as well as a count each under Section 31(1)(a) and Section 31(1)(b) of the Children's Act," he told the New Straits Times.
Under Section 377C of the Penal Code, the suspect is looking at a minimum of five years jail for each count of sodomising his daughter without consent. He is also liable to whipping.
For raping his daughter, the suspect can be punished with a minimum of eight years jail term and no less than 10 strokes of the rotan.
It was reported that the suspect began sexually abusing his daughter since his divorce two years ago.
The daughter came under the custody of her father, while her two younger sisters were under the care of their mother following the separation.
Sources who spoke to the NST after the suspect's arrest said the girl decided to reveal her ordeal to their mother when she learnt about her father’s intention to take her sisters, aged 9 and 11, to live with him.
