KUALA TERENGGANU: A labourer was charged in the Sessions Court today with 105 charges related to incest and sodomy against his 15-year old daughter since August.

The accused, a father of four, pleaded not guilty to all the charges read to him separately before judge Nooriah Osman.

He faced 104 charges under Section 376 (3) of the Penal Code for incest which carries a maximum 30 years' jail and a minimum 10 strokes of the rotan, upon conviction.

He was also charged with sodomy under Section 377 C of the Penal Code which carries a maximum 20 years' jail and whipping, if found guilty.

The incest was alleged to have been committed daily by the accused while the victim was staying at their home in Kuala Berang between noon and 4pm from Aug 14 until Nov 26.

The accused allegedly also sodomised the girl at the same place between midnight and 4am on Nov 26.

The court fixed Jan 15 for the case to be re-mentioned and for the appointment of counsel for the accused.

The court did not offer any bail.

Deputy public prosecutor Zulfazliah Mahmud prosecuted.

It was learnt that the victim was under her mother’s care following a divorce and the alleged incidents occurred while the victim and her two siblings stayed with their father since May last year.

However, the matter became known to the victim’s mother after the girl complained of stomach pain and following a medical check at a hospital, the mother lodged a police report at the Chukai police station in Kemaman on Dec 1.
