31-year-old Munawar was sentenced on Wednesday to seven years’ jail for each count of raping his underaged girlfriend. He pleaded guilty to three counts of raping the then 15-year-old school dropout in May and June 2005 at a house in Kampung Gumit, Kerling and Kalumpang.

The sentences are to run concurrently from the date he was arrested, 10 September 2005. The victim had given birth to a baby boy in February 2006.

Although the girl told the court in her testimony that she did not want to lodge a police report against Munawar, an Indonesian, but her father had forced her to do so. Judge Datin Zabariah Mohd Yusof told Munawar that his crime is a serious offence, but spared him from caning.
