A Malaysian lawyer named Nur Fatihah Azzahra, who works at Wali Azri & Associates in Shah Alam, recently shared a shocking incest case she encountered during the first MCO.
In her lengthy Facebook post, Fatihah shared an unusual case between a husband and wife (who are in their 40s) and their 20-something-year-old daughter. Apparently the parents decided to “sacrifice” and divorce, so the father could have a sexual relationship with their daughter.
In fact, the father and daughter duo even tied the knot through the service of a marriage syndicate. It wasn’t long before the man and his child conceived a baby together. However, the couple encountered a problem when the identity of the biological father was brought into question after the baby was born. The new mom became frustrated that her infant couldn’t be registered under her husband (aka father)’s name even though they were married.
Who’s to blame in this scenario? The lust of the father for having sex with his own daughter, and then fathering a child (or grandchild) together? Should the blame be on the mother, who not only gave her consent but also encouraged her daughter to marry her husband? In Malaysia, incest is illegal and criminal under section 376A of the Penal Code.
Many netizens took to the comments section to voice their disgust at the father’s behaviour and can’t comprehend why they would think this is okay in the first place.
