A pedophile, who reportedly posed as a Housing and Development Board (HDB) officer and sexually assaulted two teenager sisters, was handed a maximum prison sentence of 20 years' preventive detention on Monday.

Justice Valerie Thean, while delivering the prison sentence, said that the 54-year-old cleaner, identified as Hussain Samat's offenses were "shocking" and "of grave concern." The Judge also added that the accused's actions "demonstrated a high level of premeditation," according to Today Online

The High Court judge in Singapore also said that Samat had "concocted a scheme" and "repeatedly engaged in threats of physical violence in order to coerce (his) victims."

Agreeing with the prosecution, led by deputy public prosecutors David Khoo and Chew Xin Ying, the judge said that a "substantial term of preventive detention must be imposed... to protect the public." The punishment also included caning, however, Hussain will be spared because he is above the age of 50.

Reports state that preventive detention, which ranges from seven to 20 years, is imposed only on recalcitrant offenders. The court ultimately determines who should be put in the category after establishing that they should be locked away in an effort to protect the public. 



 

Hussain pleaded guilty to eight charges last month in the High Court. The charges included aggravated sexual assault by penetration, aggravated outrage of modesty, attempted aggravated rape, impersonation of a public servant, making an obscene film and exhibiting obscene films to a young person, according to reports.

The court on Monday also heard that Hussain was a repeat offender and has been jailed before on multiple offenses since 1985. These offenses include armed robbery and possession of controlled drugs. Hussain was also imprisoned in 2001 for molesting and sodomizing a 15-year-old boy and having sexual intercourse with a teenage girl.

His series of latest offences included a plan to pose as an HDB officer, knock on his neighbors' doors and rob them of their valuables if they let them in. Hussain, in May last year, reportedly went to the unit where the sisters lived with their mother and told the that he had received a complaint about them throwing trash near the central rubbish chute area. The mother, however, denied the accusation and that is when Hussain decided to lure the elder daughter, then 16, to his flat.

He reportedly told the mother that one of her daughters must follow him to his flat to sign a document stating they had not thrown the rubbish. The elder sister volunteered and went along with him, after reaching the flat Hussain locked the door and forced himself on her while holding a knife. He also took obscene videos of the incident in his phone. The accused then decided to lure the younger sister too and called her to his flat through the elder sister's phone. He performed the same sexual acts on her and forced her to watch the video of her elder sister being assaulted. 

The sisters eventually managed to escape after the older girl sent a WhatsApp message to her school friends, saying that she had been kidnapped and asked them to call the police.
