SINGAPORE – A 35-year-old woman, whose technician husband is on trial for repeatedly raping their daughter more than three years ago, still believes that the girl, who was 14 then, is making up the allegations.

Defence lawyer A. Revi Shanker produced three police reports made in relation to the girl running away from home, although Justice Lee Seiu Kin questioned the relevance of two of these reports, which were lodged months after the girl raised the rape allegations.

During cross-examination, Deputy Public Prosecutor Winston Man told the woman that her daughter may have lied about her relationships with boys, but it was “a very big jump” to say that she was capable of making a false report against her biological father for rape.

The girl’s father is on trial for two incidents that the girl can “Most vividly recall”.

On Nov 19, 2014, while her mother was at work , her father forced his way into the locked common toilet while she was changing and raped her, said the girl.

The girl told the school counsellor about the rapes and the matter was then reported to the police and the Ministry of Social and Family Development.

In a statement to the police in April 2015, the man admitted that he had sex with his daughter on one occasion.

A man who allegedly raped his biological daughter eight times at their family home in Punggol contested the charges against him in court on Monday.

The 34-year-old technician, who cannot be named to protect his daughter’s identity, faces two charges of raping his then 14-year-old daughter, between November 2014 and January 2015.According to the prosecution’s opening statement the girl claims to have been raped eight times in total over the same period.

The girl, now 17, has two younger siblings aged nine and 11.The alleged offences – which were said to have taken place on 19 November 2014 and 9 January 2015 – came to light after the girl confided in her then-boyfriend, who arranged a meeting for her with their school counsellor.

On both occasions, the girl’s mother was not home although her siblings were present at the time.

The boy, who attended the same secondary school as her, took the stand on Monday to testify that the girl first told him about her father raping her on 9 January 2015, the same day of the second incident.

The boy urged the girl to make a police report or to speak to the school counsellor but the girl was reluctant as she did not want to cause any conflict between her parents.

Several days later, the boy made an appointment with the school counsellor and brought the girl there.
