A 33-year old man who worked as a safety coordinator currently stands trial for allegedly raping his biological mother. However, his lawyer believes otherwise and told the high court that the allegations were a “complete collusion” to get his client “out of the house”, reports The Straits Times.
Senior Counsel Harry Elias revealed the defence’s case whilst questioning the accused’s stepfather on the stand. The stepfather had testified that the accused, known to his family simply as “Boy” frequently indulges in alcohol, smokes weed, and is quite the nuisance at home.
The lawyer then said that Boy’s 56-year old mother and 54-year old stepfather had fabricated this ruse to “get rid of him”.
But the stepfather countered that there were plenty of other opportunities where he could have rat Boy out for his drug abuse.
“We did not lie, this is what happened. We are not using this as a reason to make him leave the house. This is a shameful act,” he said through a Tamil interpreter.
He also told the court that he was annoyed by the accused’s behavior and his wife was aware that he was not on speaking terms with him.
‘Boy’ lived with his mother and his stepfather in a one-bedroom apartment. Hence, one can only imagine the pressure of living in such a heated environment.
The accused, which was the second of three sons is accused of sexually assaulting his mother when he came home drunk at 2.30am on Oct 4, 2013.
On July 19, his stepfather, brothers, and sister-in-law testified their accounts of the event.
After the attack, the victim had fled to her eldest son’s house at around 6am. During that time, she had used two mobile phones to record a six-minute conversation between herself and the accused in Malay.
When the victim repeatedly asked her accused son on why he did it, his reply was: He remembered liking what he did and he wanted to do it again.
The court was told that she reached her eldest son’s apartment at 7am and was still shaking when she explained to her daughter-in-law in simple English what had happened.
The daughter-in-law then alerted the stepfather who came over shortly. They waited at the playground for the two sons, aged 36 and 32 while the woman played the recording and cried. She said that she wanted to lodge a police report, although she didn’t go into the specifics of the assault.
The six-minute recording in Malay was played when each brother took the stand to confirm it’s validity.
In the recording, the mother can be heard asking the accused multiple times on why he “kacau” and “paksa” her that morning.
He is also heard saying: “Boy likes mother”, where she replied: “Cannot. I have a husband, Boy.”
“You divorce him first,” he continued.
The mother is then heard saying, “I love you as my son. You love me in a different way”, when Boy said something that was inaudible on the recording after she told him that she did not want to see him again.
Her youngest son told the court that the police report was made after his mother told him her story, where the accused had returned home pissed drunk and climbed on top of her but she wasn’t able to push him away as he was too heavy.
The stepfather, however, only found out that wife was raped a week after when she was in a calmer state to relay the incident in full to him.
To make things even more complicated, the two brothers also testified that the accused is a filial son that helped support the family financially and even loaned them and the stepfather money on several occasions.
When asked, the stepfather denied feeling embarrassed when the accused had turned up at his hawker stall to chase him for repayment.
The trial is still ongoing while people are perplexed at what actually went down.
