Death penalty for rapist commuted

By Nasouh Nazzal
in Ras Al Khaimah

The death sentence passed on a man was yesterday reduced by the Sharia Appeal Court to 15 years in prison, to be lashed 99 times, and deported after serving his term.

A senior court official said the verdict against the Indian, S.J.M., was final for he had been shown mercy.

He had committed a heinous crime when he raped a 12-year-old national boy. S.J.M. was sentenced to death on April 14. The official said the 30-year-old man asked the boy to come to his room and help him find a telephone number because he did not know Arabic.

S.J.M. raped the boy a number of times and then carried him to the entrance of the house, left him there and fled.

The boy was found by other national neighbours and they called his father who reported the case to the police. The boy was admitted to hospital.

S.J.M. was arrested and he admitted the crime. He said he was sorry and regretted his actions.

The boy's father demanded maximum punishment because the life of boy, who is undergoing psychological therapy, has been ruined.
