Maid lied about rape

An Indonesian domestic worker was jailed for three months for lying that she had been raped by a man on three occasions.

Rohatin, 33, admitted to giving false information to Singaporean police on Dec 26 2010, that she was raped by an unknown Turkish man three times between Dec 24 and 25 2010.

The court heard that she befriended the Turk on Dec 22 and confided in him her problems.

He took her to his house where she massaged him voluntarily upon his request.

Two days later, she went to his house and claimed that he raped her. She lied that he raped her two more times on Dec 25.

An investigation showed that she cooked up the story as she was hurt and angry with the Turk for having other girlfriends, and making empty promises that he would employ her. She could have been jailed for up to one year and/or fined up to $5,000 (RM12,300).
