A fortune teller was sentenced to 12 years’ jail and six strokes of the cane for raping a teenage girl.

Siah Kwang Yung raped the teen in her own bedroom on the pretext of conducting demon exorcism rites.

In September 2011, Siah told the victim’s mother there were demons in her flat and offered to visit.

At the flat, he told the woman that demons resided in her and her 18-year-old daughter and he needed to perform rituals to remove the demons.

Some days later, Siah brought the girl into her bedroom to perform the ritual and told her family not to enter the room even if they heard any sounds. He then raped the girl.

After the incident, the girl told her family, who prevented Siah from leaving the flat and alerted the police.

Siah previously ran a makeshift stall outside a Chinese temple along Waterloo Street. – Asia One
