Father And Two Relatives Sentenced For Raping His Three Daughters
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) _ A father and two relatives were sentenced to a total of 374 years for repeatedly raping his three daughters, aged between seven and 12.
But they might serve 18 years each, since Judge Badariah Hassan ruled today in Klang, 20 miles west of Kuala Lumpur, that the sentences were to run concurrently. The maximum sentence for rape in Malaysia is 18 years.
The judge said while passing sentence, ″Even an animal would protect its own flesh and blood when an enemy tries to attack its own offspring.
″But in the case of these three men, the father had raped his own daughter, the uncle his two nieces and the adopted grandfather his three young girls,″ she said, the newspapers The Star and New Straits Times reported.
The father, Tutor Jamil, 36; the uncle Mohamed Imran Jamil, 25; and their foster grandfather, Said Rijan, 54, pleaded guilty to a total of 23 charges of raping the children between November 1990 and April of this year.
Tutor was sentenced to 94 years in jail and 14 strokes of the cane, Mohamed to 82 years and 15 strokes and Said to 198 years.
No further details about the three minors were given.
