Man jailed for sexually abusing niece when she was five
A former delivery truck driver was on Wednesday (Sept 16) jailed 6 1/2 years for sexually abusing his niece.
He made the then five-year-old girl masturbate him, and also perform oral sex on him in his room.
In one of the incidents, the victim's younger sister, who was then four, saw what had happened.
But when the sisters tried to tell their grandmother about the abuse, she did not believe them and scolded them for making things up.
The offences happened between 2006 and 2007, in a flat in the central part of Singapore where the victim's grandmother lived with her uncle.
The girls were being looked after by their grandmother as their mother did shift work.
We cannot name the accused because of a gag order protecting the identity of the victim.
