An attempted robbery ends in the death of a cab driver. The killer, Wang Wenfeng, then demands ransom from the dead man’s wife.

Engineer Yap Weng Wah got 30 years in jail and the maximum 24 strokes of the cane for abusing at least 31 boys. The phrase “did penetrate” was repeated 74 times in the 23-page charge sheet.

The other two charges involved him causing a 15-year-old boy “to penetrate” Yap’s mouth, and directing a 12-year-old to send a video of the child doing a sexual act.
