Underage prostitute to testify in court against ex-clients where she will be questioned by defence lawyers

Posted by temasektimes on April 20, 2012

The underage prostitute will be called upon to testify in court soon against her ex-clients, the majority of whom have chosen to claim trial.

Up to 48 men have been charged this week for having commercial sex with her when she was 17 years old. They include 9 civil servants, a senior banker, a company director, a senior vice-president of a private company, lawyers, a senior police officer, the former principal of Pei Chun Public School Lee Lip Hong and prominent grassroots leader and high-ranking MOE official Chua Ren Cheng. Their ages range from between 21 to 48 years old.

Only two of them have pleaded guilty to the charges so far – former teachers Lee Lip Hong and Chua Ren Cheng. The third batch of men expected to be charged next week include finance professionals, lawyers and a high-ranking SAF officer.

According to a lawyer who spoke to the media, as a witness for the prosecution, the underage prostitute is expected to be questioned in detail by the defence lawyers which include prominent criminal lawyer Subhas Anandan.

Mr Anandan has earlier condemned her as a ‘hardcore prostitute’ who deserves no protection by the law. The prosecution has obtained a gag order from the Court to prevent the media and members of the public from publishing any information which may expose the identity of the girl.

Under Section 376B (1) of the Penal Code, it is against the law to have commercial sex with a person below 18 years of age which includes oral sex.

    A sign of the prosecution showing their hand in the case? Who thinks the hookers will be able to hold up under the fire of cross-examination from the defence lawyers? And better still, will their real identities be confirmed once and for all outside of court when they turn up to testify?

    Do you think she can recognized all her clients. BTW the police must have relied on the evidence of the pimp to identify all the clients. The clients must have make the bookings on line so the pimp has a record. I am sure some of the clients manage to escape-eg they did not make the booking online and some may be tourists who have left the country.

    I am really curious about this subject…. does the law allow underage prostitute? in the first place, how did this underage prostitute end up in prostitution instead of hanging out with friends and enjoy her life like any other teens? Are these underage prostitutes mainly foreigners? Did they come to Singapore to earn big bucks and disguise themselves with some student pass? How does the Singapore immigration and customs filter and prevent non genuine foreign students in entering Singapore to earn a living via prostitution…. the men who had sex with underage girls should be taking 100% of the punishment, for what you know, they may not know the age of the prostitutes. The underage prostitutes should bear 50% of the punishment, for what you know these prostitutes might have lied about their age and pretend to be 18 years old and above for the sake of earning quick cash… when there is a supply, any consumer would want to give it a try… in the first place this supply should not be in place. How did this supply of prostitutes form? Why is there no legal action taken to raid such indecent supply like raiding the illegal gambling dens? Before penalising the consumer, what were the measures taken by the relevant government department to prevent illegal and underage prostitution?

      Again generalizing and thinking must be FT. This girl was being exposed as a local. If U want to know why they prostitute themselves, it’s call greed. What she earns in 1 month is more then what you earn in 3. That’s why

    Note to the slutty cheekon (“HARDCORE prostitute”), you’re gonna get grilled by Subhas ANANDAN. “As far as I am concerned, this girl does not deserve protection as she is a HARDCORE PROSTITUTE who got so many men into trouble” – Subhas ANANDAN.

    “A renowned criminal lawyer, he is credited with the conduct of several landmark cases that have shaped the face of criminal law in Singapore. Subhas’ criminal law practice covers a whole spectrum of matters. He is a familiar figure at both the Subordinate Courts and the Supreme Court and has handled well over 1,500 criminal cases, from murder and kidnapping to drug trafficking and white collar crimes.

    Subhas is well-regarded as a leading criminal lawyer in Singapore and was awarded the Legal Eagle Award of 2001 by the Law Society of Singapore. In 2003 Asian Legal Business presented Subhas with an award for his outstanding performance in criminal law.”

    They don’t have a shred of defence .Their statements were recorded before they were charged . They are just buying for time !!!!

    This will be a most interesting court case and it all rests on whether this hardcore prostitute was lying about her age, whether the men bothered to ask or were misled by the pimp. And medical specialists might even be called to tell the Court whether she looked underaged?

    It is prostitution and if underaged prostitutes are protected, then it makes a mockery of the law which was meant to protect underaged girls not underaged prostitutes.

    Its just a case of whether or not the guy had sex with the girl or not.

    If not, why in the statement did the guy say yes?

    The girl will say confirm yes, I had sex with him by the prosecution. The guy will produce a medical report for sever erectile dysfunction that are cannot be rectified by ED pills stating he had that condition for 1 – 3 years or a medical report stating he has severe premature ejaculation issues, which he ejaculates the moments he put on a condoms. Girl is cross examine to create doubt that she cannot recall correctly the client. So no sex, including oral sex occurred.

    Sadly, only a few man can use this defense if it even appear at all.
