A bizarre case of outrage of modesty
His modus operandi to fulfill his desire to have sex was to choose a woman he liked then follow her into a toilet to ambush her for the purpose. (7 Nov 2017)
Having committed three similar offences previously, he surprised his latest victim in a toilet at her workplace in Our Tampines Hub.
Razali Abdullah, a 32-year-old Singaporean, who was convicted of trespassing and aggravated outrage of modesty, committed the latest offence two months after he was released for his previous conviction.
This time, the stall assistant was given 10 years of preventive detention and three strokes of the cane by District Judge (DJ) Jasvender Kaur, who described Razali as a “significant danger to women” in the State Courts on Friday (15 December).
Preventive detention, which carries a minimum incarceration period of seven years, is usually given to recalcitrant offenders. There is no possibility of remission for good behaviour, unlike a jail term.
Razali pleaded guilty last month to one count of aggravated molest and one count of trespassing into a female toilet. He had been in and out of jail since 2003. His previous conviction was on 8 May 2012 when he was sentenced to five years’ corrective training and four strokes of the cane.
The victim is a 47-year-old woman who worked in Our Tampines Hub.
