He told the girls that he had supernatural powers and they had to perform sex acts to prove their love for him. The five girls were aged between 12 and 15 then.
Two of them even went on to become his accomplices, helping to coerce other victims into performing these obscene acts.
When he was finally caught and taken to court, he claimed the girls had forced themselves on him. Simon Wong Choy Chuan, 25, was on Wednesday convicted of 10 counts of sexual offences involving minors. His crimes were so extensive that it took the prosecutor nearly half an hour to read out the statement of facts.
When the judge asked Wong if he had anything to say in mitigation, he looked down for a moment before turning to the court interpreter.
“I don’t know what to say, only my mum can speak on my behalf,” he said with a smirk, adding that he had submitted a mitigation letter to the courts.
District Judge Siva Shanmugam pointed out that Wong had claimed in the letter that the victims had forced themselves on him, which was different from what he had admitted to moments earlier.
Wong replied: “I must consult my mother about this since she wrote the letter.”
This is a shocking case of a 25 year old man exploiting teenagers using paranormal persuasion. It is an abuse of powers we can be almost certain don’t exist but this makes it no less of a crime and no less horrible.
