20-year-old Indonesian, Rajama Samuel Doctorian Purba, was sentenced to 8 years imprisonment and given 6 strokes of the cane on 15 August.
he had pleaded guilty to a charge of raping a drunk 16-year-old girl in his rented apartment in 2020, with two other charges for molestation and possession of obscene films considered during his sentencing.
Rajama was sharing the rented condominium unit with another Indonesian, 19-year-old Anthony Aditya Tedjawisastra, who was also pursuing his studies at a private school here.
The victim was invited by her friend, who is a coursemate of Anthony to a gathering at the apartment on 6 November 2020 to celebrate his birthday.
She was hesitant at first to go because she didn’t know anyone, but she eventually decided to go.
After some introductions at the apartment, the victim saw in the living room with Anthony, Rajama ad her friend playing card games and drinking.
She later became dizzy and wanted to puke after a few rounds of the games, and Rajama then supported her and brought her to his bedroom toilet, locking the door behind him, while the others stayed in the living room.
The victim then finished vomiting and Rajama then cleaned her up and realised she was unconscious, before replacing her on his bed, lifting her shirt and bra, and groping her.
The girl didn’t react and he then raped her.
The victim could feel him raping her but couldn’t fight back or move as she was too drunk, and after he stopped, he dressed her up and helped her to the toilet where she vomited again.
He then left her there.
Athony later entered the room and scolded Rajama for leaving her o the toilet floor, and Rajama then confessed to what he had done.
The victim left the unit at about 4 am with her friend supporting her, ad she then told her friend about what Rajama had done to her, and she then made a police report later that night.
