Man charged with eleven counts of raping girlfriend’s 14-year-old daughter

GEORGE TOWN: A security guard claimed trial at two separate Sessions courts here yesterday to eleven counts of raping his girlfriend’s daughter over a period of three months.

Meazmande Latiff, 38, from Batu Maung, is accused of raping the 14-year-old girl at an apartment in Jalan Teluk Kumbar between August 20 and Nov 19 this year.

Meazmande was charged under section 376(1) of the Penal Code for committing rape for all eleven counts. The section carries a sentence of up to 20 years of imprisonment or whipping.

Judge Irwan Suainbon and Judge Roslan Hamid had both separately denied Meazmande’s bail request for fear that he would intimidate the witness, as they reside in the same apartment.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Nurul Huda Idris and police Prosecuting Officer Inspektor Marysia Maklin prosecuted.

Meazmande was not represented. Both judges set Jan 10 for mention and for the accused to appoint counsel.
