The two are looking to a life incarceration with caning or even face the hangman if found guilty of the murder charge. In his second case, Daniel may be fined and up to 10 years with caning for assaulting Mr. Jules
Blackmail for sex
A Bangladeshi man has got a lenient sentence after admitting blackmailing his ex-lover, a married Singaporean woman, between the 27th of March and 4th April.
The man and the woman, both who we can’t name because of the gag order, ended their relationship in 2014 after dating for seven years. However, in 2015 the man wanted to rekindle their old flame.
After failing to convince her to his nest, the man resorted to blackmail. He told her that he have kept multiple videos of them having sex and threatened to share them with her friends, neighbours, and family who he claimed he already had their contacts.
The 38-year-old woman’s attempt to have him delete the videos proved futile, and not even the Jan 28th sex with him could convince him otherwise. Instead, he filmed the escapade without her knowledge to advance his agenda further.
When the lady decided that enough was enough and decided to ignore him, he decided to send threatening messages to her on the and on 6th April, he sent the video clip to her husband and daughter.
How insensitive this man was, he got a lenient sentence. Such charges, which fall under criminal intimidation, face up to two years and fine.
