A 55-year-old man convicted many times of sexual molestation was jailed for 15 months by Singapore’s State Courts on Tuesday after pleading guilty to three counts of “outraging the modesty” of two Indonesian women last July.
Defendant Tan Yew Song – previously convicted of the same offense in 1983, 1988, 1992, 1998, 2001, 2015 and 2016 – physically harassed two Indonesian domestic workers aged 32 and 37 on July 21 last year, Yahoo News Singapore reported.
The two maids were chatting while caring for two children and a wheelchair-bound female employer, respectively, at a multi-purpose hall in their neighborhood at 2pm on that day.
Tan approached the pair and tried to join them in a conversation, however, the women could not understand him.
The court learned that the man suddenly put his arms around the waist of one of the workers and started rubbing her. The victim immediately stopped the man by shouting at him. He fled but reappeared again and smacked the other maid on her right buttock before walking away.
Ten minutes later, Tan approached the same victim again and squeezed her left breast, prompting the two women to call the police.
When the police arrived at the scene, the man was said to have tried to flee but failed.
It was reportedly well known that the defendant loved hanging out and “disturbing” other people in the neighborhood.
He should be given some really hard caning too as it appears that he doesn’t seemed to be afraid of jail time.
Give him one solid good one that will shock the life out of him and constantly remind him should he wants to do that again.
The best punishment for him is just rub him until he stop breathing because jail is doesn’t work,he still keep repeating
Cane him if he’s found to b fit,a Serial repeated offender sure he will do it again when he’s out.Pls name te place.
The earlier conviction was not deterrent enough and he has become a repeat offender. But now with the 15 months jail sentence and without adequate caning that would pose a big question mark for future perpetrators.
