Sex predator jailed for 30 years
31 year old Yap Weng Wah, a Malaysian who worked here as an engineer, was sentenced to 30 years in jail and 24 strokes of the cane for repeated sex offences against 31 different young boys.
All the boys were aged 11 to 15 at the time of the offences and he had met them all online. He used multiple monikers and identities online but he usually pretended to be an 18 year old polytechnic student.
Yap, who had been in Singapore since 2009, had groomed the boys sexually by talking to them online and he either sodomised or had oral sex with all of them except for 1. This victim had just sent Yap a video of himself doing a lewd act.
He spoke to his victims and often added many of the young boys' friends so that he had many 'mutual friends' with the victims. He acted as a big brother or mentor to the boys to gain their trust. Then he would talk about sexual things with them and make them curious about sex.
He encouraged them to explore this sexual side and got them all to agree to engage in sexual activities with him.
