Public Caning for College Student Who Raped Teen
Malaysia Star ^ | Saturday June 7, 2014 | Qishin Tariq

Posted on 06/09/2014 12:00:56 AM PDT by nickcarraway

A college student learnt a painful lesson after he was given eight strokes of the rotan in public as punishment for raping a teenager.

Ainur Asyriq Aizamuddin, 19, was whipped with a light rotan (the type for punishing white collar criminals) inside the Ampang Sessions courtroom in front of a doctor, his parents and a group of observers.

Ainur was seen flinching each time the policeman readied to whip him.

The convicted rapist was also heard groaning in pain and appeared to be holding back tears after the fifth strike.

Judge Manira Mohd Nor also ordered Ainur to serve three months of community service, under Section 5(1) of the Compulsory Attendance Act 1954, a provision which gives an alternative to prison time.

Ainur had originally claimed trial to two counts of raping the teenage girl but changed his plea and admitted to the crime on May 14.

The offences occurred at an apartment in Estana Court, Ukay Bestari, Ampang Jaya, on Nov 19 and Dec 7, 2013.

Ainur was represented by Farhan Read and Donny Abdullah while deputy public prosecutor Goh Ai Rene acted for the prosecution.

In September 2013, Judge Manira had similarly sentenced three youths to public caning after convicting them of armed robbery

While it is an uncommon punishment, the provision under Section 293 of the Criminal Procedure Code allows the court several alternatives to prison, in order to rehabilitate youthful offenders.

Section 293(1)(c) in particular gives the court discretion to punish the offender with up to 10 strokes of a light cane or rotan within the court premises.

He raped a young girl, and getting smacked on the ass is somehow controversial????

The fact he is still alive seems controversial to me.

I have no idea what constitutes ‘rape’ there, do you? It could simply be consensual sex between a 19 and 17 year old.

She was 15 at the time. Appeared to be consensual.

do you think 15 year olds can consent?

Yeah she can consent. 15 years old is an age of reason. Not that it should be legal but having sex with a consenting 15 year old deserves to be in a different category of crime than having sex with her without her consent.

I believe the law is not about ‘can they consent’ but are they mature enough to understand the consequences of the consent? So to protect their immaturity, the law does not allow them the right to make the decision.

Now, that’s not to say some teens aren’t as mature as adults, it’s just a benchmark age for a majority. I don’t think it’s written down any where, it just seems to be a consensus of those making the rules.

Well, if they are old enough for sex they can move out and get a job.

I never said they were old enough for sex. However at 16 most are still in high school...so the law is not the only source of whether someone should be sexually active.

As a Christian I would discourage it before marriage...but tell me how many teens listen to that advice? Considering the public school atmosphere, teen pressure, and television.

However, in my experience you don’t throw teens out to be taken advantage of because you disagree with their actions. God is LOVE and he did not throw us out, but instead forgave us and helped us learn how to live....by example. Jesus is the only perfect person, so I certainly would not expect a 15 year old to be able to live a perfect life.

Our parental disappointments should not destroy their life....it is dangerous out there. No, it isn’t easy with teens, but what worth having in life is? Family takes work, forgiveness, and patience....and unconditional love.

I think I'd agree if and only if both parties were 15 (or underage). If one of the parties is an adult, there's far too much room for the manipulation of a teenager by an adult - I see no reason such a case shouldn't be punished harshly.

‘Caning’ is not getting smacked on the ass. Not in the orient. There is a doctor present for a reason. Too heavy a touch and the end of the cane will strip meat out of the person’s back, not just the skin.

Well...based on this then that Montana judge who sentenced that teacher who raped a student to 30 days in jail doesn’t seem so bad.

Do you would execute an 18 year old senior who has sex with a 17 year old junior? I'm glad you're not making laws.

I COULD see teen sex being discouraged with a few swats of the rattan -- on BOTH parties.

Egads! Stop being so reasonable.

I'd submit that most of those calling for more severe punishment haven't had sex for over 15 years, let alone remember what being a teenager in love (or lust) was like.

I come to FreeRepublic to read interesting news items that often get overlooked elsewhere, but the "get-off-my-lawn old fart brigades" are almost more than I can take. I used to laugh when lefties accused conservatives of being like the Taliban. It's getting harder to laugh.

I believe we have laws that require prison and registering as a sex offender....in certain cases of rape, yes there have been death penalties.... depending on the circumstances, the jury or the judge.

We all feel strongly about this issue.

Children as young as 8 years old are having sex in the good ol’ Godless USA. In fact, they’re encouraged to do so by the entertainment media and Kinsey/Sanger inspired “sex education”.

As long as none of the participants is more than 18, while any of the others is younger than 18, any kind of consentual sex between two or more of young teens and pre-teens is just ducky, according to the sex ed mavens and the Planned Parenthood “counselors”.

This weirdness about all sex under 18 being “rape” is an insanity that emerged just recently.

My grandmother was 15 when she married, my wife was 17 when we married when I was in the Army during the Vietnam war, and in 1960 the median age for first marriage was 20, the “median”, same in the 1950s.

Those battle hardened and worldly warriors from WWII were marrying plenty of teen girls, and I wouldn’t want to guess the percentages of their wives being virgins on their marriage day.

We all know the ideals that we seek, the values we want to instill, the moral culture we want, the return of the values to past America, but this twisted and sick overreaction of the last 20 years is fringe like, and isn’t a return to normality but in it’s own way is as twisted as other things today, it is overlooking normalcy as an overreaction to cultural victories of the left, but it also reflects much of the left and feminism and ignores nature and science and our own families and even our own dating experiences and other’s experiences that we frequently saw among our high school peers.

Back in the 1960’s, in my 7th grade class I knew of a girl in my class having regular sex with a boy in my class. This is nothing new.

We could reduce these problems by going back to having girls being married young, to somewhat-older (20’s) men who could support a family, as long as the girl’s father approved of the suitor.

You would execute an 18 year old who has sex with a 17 year old? You didn't answer the question the first time.

So you would flog and imprison an 18 year old who has sex with a 17 year old.

Does this include the case where it's an 18 year old woman having sex with a 17 year old boy? How long a term of imprisonment? Months? Years?

How big an age difference before execution is on the table?

Just curious.
