A Singapore court sentenced a Japanese man to prison and caning for “brutal and cruel” raping a university student in 2019.

He will be imprisoned for 17 and a half years and caned 20 times.
Singapore enforces caning for graffiti, robbery, and drug trafficking, a contentious form of corporal punishment.
Kita met the lady in December 2019 at Clarke Quay, a renowned nightlife location, according to court filings.
Kita was new to the 20-year-old lady. He raped her in his apartment when she was drunk.
He texted a pal a cellphone video of the deed.
The victim fled the apartment and reported the rape to authorities later that day.
Police nabbed Kita the same day and have held him since.
His cellphone included two rape films, which police recovered.
Justice Aedit Abdullah termed the attack “brutal and cruel” and said the woman was “vulnerable, clearly drunk, and incapable of looking after herself”.
The court rejected the defence’s claim that the victim gave first permission to intercourse.
Japanese media and social media have covered the punishment.
The practice of caning in contemporary Singapore has shocked some people, while others have welcomed it.
One remarked “in Japan, when it comes to sexual assault, society and the police make victims feel guilty, and the punishment is far too lenient” .
Singapore believes caning deters violent crime, but rights organizations argue there is no proof.
Caning in Singapore with a wooden stick on the back of the thigh may cause lifelong scars.
Rights organization Transformative Justice Collective said the cane is 1.5m (4.9ft) long and 1.27cm wide.
The practice gained worldwide notice in 1994 when 19-year-old US citizen Michael Fay was caned six times for vandalism.
Singapore officials caned Fay with fewer strokes despite Clinton’s appeal.
