Stepfather gets 28 years' jail, 24 strokes of cane for raping girl since 8
A cleaning supervisor, who started raping his stepdaughter when she was eight years old and continued to sexually exploit her for the next five years, was sentenced to 28 years' jail and 24 strokes of the cane on Tuesday (Feb13).
The horrific offences, described by a prosecutor as "utterly sickening", came to light in March 2015 after the girl, then 12, fled when the man left their one-bedroom flat to throw away a used condom.
Quizzed by police, the man initially denied the allegations, digging up her Facebook posts in a bid to show that she was "not a good girl". He later admitted having sex with the girl but blamed her for "seducing" him by exposing herself while she was asleep.
The 39-year-old man cannot be named to protect the identity of the girl, who is now 15 and living with her maternal grandmother.
Costly flights force Malaysians in China to take long way home
The high prices of direct flight tickets are forcing many Malaysians staying in China to take long transit flights to return home to Malaysia for Chinese New Year (CNY).
According to a report in The Star, economy class tickets for direct flights from Beijing to Kuala Lumpur cost at least RMB2,700 (RM1,700), more than triple the usual price of such tickets.
Taking transit flights are cheaper but take up a tremendous amount of time. Someone taking a transit flight from Beijing may take as long as 24 hours to reach Malaysia.
Nevertheless, the Malaysians who make the long journey home feel it is worth all that trouble just to be home for the CNY reunion.
