Alleged rape victim tells court boyfriend offered RM100 to cops
BUTTERWORTH: An Indonesian woman told the Sessions Court here Tuesday that her boyfriend offered RM100 to two policemen for her release after she was detained for allegedly not having a valid travel document.
The 26-year-old woman, the prime witness in a rape case involving three policemen, said this when cross-examined by lawyer R.S.N Rayer, who was representing Kons Syahiran Romli, one of the accused.
As a result, she said her 52-year-old boyfriend was handcuffed but was later released when she agreed to be taken to the police station while waiting for him to collect her travel documents and bring them to the police.
However, Rayer could not proceed with the cross-examination as the woman was feeling unwell.
Judge Meor Sulaiman Ahmad Tarmizi then fixed April 29 to continue hearing the case.
Besides Syahiran, the other two accused are Kpl Nik Sin Mat Lazim, 33, and Kons Remy Anak Dana, 25.
They were charged with committing the offence at Room 4 of the Perai police barrack here between 6.40am and 7.30am on Nov 9, 2012.
The three policemen were also charged with committing unnatural sex with the woman at the same place, time and date.
Nik Sin and Remy were represented by lawyer Abdul Roni Rahman, while deputy public prosecutor Suhaimi Ibrahim prosecuted. - Bernama
