According to prosecution records, the clerk, a 29-year-old Egyptian, raped the two women, both Filipinas, on September 19, last year in his flat in International City after threatening them with a knife saying he would bring his friends to gang-rape them if they did not give in.

Once he was done, he went to the bathroom to take a shower and the women ran out.

The Court of First Instance ordered that the accused be deported after serving his prison term.

One of the women, a 27-year-old employee, said she had met the defendant online and he had posed as a Brazilian.

He invited her for coffee to his flat about two days later and she took her friend along with her. There, he started to touch her friend and eventually raped both of them. The other woman, a 25-year-old office clerk, confirmed that they were raped by the accused at knifepoint.

A Pakistani driver said at around 2am he saw the two women running out of a building looking terrified. He dropped them home upon their request and learnt they had been threatened with a knife.

The knife and an employment card belonging to one of the women were found in the defendant’s flat. The verdict can be appealed within 15 days.
