This guy's a real pervert and I think the sentence meted out to him is just too little. There should be life prisonment for paedophiles just to ensure they never come out and do disgusting acts again. :mad:

Well chemical castration is a good option - so good that some pedophiles request it. Unfortunately what has happened is that real research into the causes and treatment of pedophilia has stopped or dried up and we are stuck with very primitive mechanisms to cope with it. His sentence of the films/ DVD's is excessively light - it seems Singapore does not distinguish child porn from normal porn that well and hence the penalties are light in comparison to what would happen in Australia IMO. In fact I think it's only recently that Singapore has begun treating under age porn as a separate offense?

Chemical castration would be ideal for such perverts. Just to ensure they don't come out and prey on children again. I thought the law could do better to punish these perverts. And to think they only gave him 12 more weeks jail time for possessing child pornography..that's like only additional 3 months for his monstrous acts, just a slap on his wrist.
