On Monday, a man was sentenced to 29 years in prison and 24 strokes of the cane for forcing his son to have sex with his inebriated mother twice.

According to the prosecution, the 41-year-old man sexually molested his daughter from the age of nine to 15, while forcing his older son, then between the ages of 15 and 16, to have sex with the man’s unsuspecting wife, who is also the siblings’ biological mother.

On Monday, the man pleaded guilty to three of his counts before Justice Dedar Singh Gill, including inducing his son to sexually violate his mother and sexually abusing his daughter.

The family of four resided in a flat in Singapore’s northwestern district in 2015. When her father instructed her to wash her private parts during the year-end school holidays, the daughter, then 11, was at home. The girl went along with it, knowing that the man was about to sexually assault her, as he had done previously. Her father then raped her in her room sexually.

When the girl was 13, her father also raped her in her bedroom, ignoring her cries of anguish. He didn’t employ any kind of defense.

The girl confided in her older brother, who advised her against succumbing to their father’s demands.

The son, on the other hand, kept quiet about the acts because he was frightened of getting punished by their father and didn’t want to destroy the family’s reputation. He didn’t even file a police report.

The youngsters didn’t tell their mother because they didn’t want her to confront the irritable man and get hurt.

In 2018, the family relocated to a new apartment. The accused and his wife were drinking one night, and the inebriated woman fell asleep in her bed. Their youngster was playing a video game on his console at the time when his father asked him to rape his mother.

The lad, who was then a virgin, was taken aback and refused, but the enraged dad forcefully repeated his demands. The youngster complied because he was afraid of being beaten. His father “assisted” him because he didn’t know how to commit the crime.

When the dad left the room, the child rushed to stop what he was doing and wash his hands. His mother was completely oblivious of what had occurred.

In 2019, the daughter attempted a presentation at school about unprotected sex and sexually transmitted viruses and was disgusted when she learnt about her father’s wrongdoings toward her.

“After attending this discourse, the victim sobbed on multiple times when the accused attempted to have sex with her. Because he was frightened that she would have sex with other boys, the accused told the victim that he had intercourse with her. According to the prosecution, the accused told the victim that all he wanted to do was have sex with her.

She went to her aunt’s house one day and confided in the older woman, who took her to the police station on November 2nd to file a report. During the course of the investigation, the man’s crimes against his son were discovered.

“This case is truly unparalleled in its total and frankly inconceivable degradation of all familial ties,” Deputy Public Prosecutor Victoria Ting said in opening the prosecution’s sentencing statement.

“Three members of the accused’s immediate family have been victims of the accused’s heinous acts,” she continued.

According to the DPP, the man had violated his moral obligations as a father to nurture and protect his children, had abused his children’s trust as a figure of authority, and had made his home a dangerous place for his children to be in, and had made his home a dangerous place for his children to be in.

The man’s lawyer, Chua Hock Lu, argued in mitigation that the man was the family’s disciplinarian and that his role already included elements of deference and authority.

There was also no evidence that the guy abused his daughter on a regular basis, or that he utilized threats or compulsion to compel the victims’ quiet, according to Chua.

The accused man’s wife has also indicated that their daughter has forgiven him, according to the defense attorney.

“The facts of this case are repulsive,” Justice Gill stated. The heinous nature of the accused’s actions can’t be fully described in words.

“These acts include raping his biological daughter and inducing his biological son to rape his own mother – the accused’s wife – while she was inebriated.

“The crimes are a slap in the face of humanity’s core ideals. The sanctions must reflect the seriousness of the crimes and address the public outrage that such crimes cause,” he continued.
