A 39-year-old single mother who forced her daughters into having sex with Bangladeshi men was sentenced to 150 years in prison after she pleaded guilty to 10 charges of prostituting them.

She was charged with prostituting the girls to two men at a budget hotel in Larkin Perdana on five different dates — on Oct 1 and then for four days in a row from Oct 4 to Oct 7.

She was accused of selling her children, aged 10 and 13 years old, for RM50 a session, sometimes collecting only RM1, RM5, RM10 or RM20 and would shamelessly watch her daughters conduct the acts.

Clad in an orange tudung, blue top and long pants, the woman pleaded guilty to a total of 10 charges (five for each daughter on each date).

According to The Star, she was charged under Section 31(1)(b) of the Child Act 2001 read together with Section 16(1) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017 for the offences.

The mother, who was not represented, pleaded for a just a fine, citing that she has two young children aged five and fours years to care for.

Sessions judge Kamarudin Kamsun sentenced her to 15 years' jail for each charge, however, the sentences will run concurrently for charges with the same dates. This means that she is set to spend 75 years in jail.

DPP Suhaila Shafi'uddin prosecuted the case.
