Too little, too late: Former gang member apologises to friend for not preventing multiple rapes by gang leader
Then 16 years old, he had stood by as his 13-year-old female friend was raped by his gang leader. Four years on during said leader’s trial, the 20-year-old former gang member Fu Yiming would like to apologise to her for doing “a poor job” as her friend.
Fu testified on the second day of 25-year-old Koh Rong Guan’s trial, who is charged with raping the girl, now 17, four times from November 2013 to January 2014.
Koh’s, also known as Charles, other charges include criminal intimidation and causing hurt.
The alleged rapes took place in a karaoke outlet in Choa Chu Kang Centre and a block of flats in Choa Chu Kang Crescent. She made a police report in July 2014 after photographs Koh took of her and Fu in a sexually compromising position went viral on social media.
Fu, who had been aware of the rapes, said he did not dare make a police report as he was afraid of Koh.
His gang had met the girl in October 2013. When Koh told Fu that she had supposedly bad-mouthed Fu’s girlfriend, Fu told him to “settle it” for him.
Fu said Koh told him he had scolded her. After a second time in which Koh told the gang of seven he had sex with her, Fu found out from the girl that she had been raped both times.
During the third time, Fu had attempted to intervene, but Koh had assaulted him. Fu said Koh had been about to hit him with a brick, but the girl pleaded for Koh to stop and agreed to have sex with him.
It was then Koh made Fu and the girl pose for the sexually explicit images.
On the fourth occasion, Fu had walked away to buy a drink as Koh took her to a staircase.
Fu told the court he had “apologised to her for not being able to protect her” after the third incident.
Koh’s trial continues.
