It seems like you can’t trust anyone these days. You can’t trust your doctor, after he inserted his penis in your mouth while you’re unconscious, you can’t trust your Grab driver for not threatening to rape you, and it also seems you can’t even have fun at a cosplay convention without a photographer forcing himself onto you.
We’ve heard plenty of these chilling stories with most of the victims being women. They can’t even feel safe at work. Paul Yong was accused of raping his Indonesian maid back in 2019 and the case has been ongoing ever since. However, it looks like the nightmare has come to an end for the victim. Here’s the story:
In case you didn’t know, Tronoh assemblyman Paul Yong has been on trial in court for allegedly raping his maid since 2019. The former state executive member was accused of the offence that apparently took place in his home at Meru Desa Park, Perak. After 3 long years and a postponement back in June earlier this year, the court has finally reached a verdict. Paul Yong has been found guilty.
High Court judge Abdul Wahab Mohamed mentioned that the 52-year-old failed to defend himself and did not raise any reasonable doubt against the prosecution’s case. “As an employer, you should be protecting her, especially when she has come from a different country, and not act according to your lust,” judge Abdul said.
The victim who is from Indonesia managed to convinced the court that she did not lie and accused her employer just to simply go back to her home country. Since he was found guilty, Paul Yong is sentenced to 13 years in jail and 2 lashes of the cane. Although some may argue that may not be enough, it’s still a victory for the victim.
For your information, the case was first brought up after the victim filed a report that the politician, married with 4 children, had raped her in his home back in July 2019 around 8:15pm – 9:15pm. Paul apparently pleaded not guilty throughout the case.
We hope that the victim will finally be at peace knowing that justice was served.
