SAF Lieutenant Colonel accused of engaging underage prostitute claims trial

SINGAPORE: A Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Lieutenant Colonel accused of having paid sex with an underage prostitute in 2011 has claimed trial.

Emlyn Thomas Thariyan, 37, is one of 51 men to be charged with having commercial sex with the minor. He is the third man to contest the charges, following Swiss national Juerg Buergin and business consultant Edward Whistler Goh.

District Judge Eugene Teo ordered that part of the trial on Wednesday be held in camera or in chambers.

This follows the prosecution's application that the girl, a vulnerable witness, should give evidence in closed court.

They said that online forums have published information pertaining to her identity despite gag orders issued by the court.

They argued that she is "susceptible to emotional injury", adding that she is a victim of a sexual crime.

The prosecution pointed out while it was a fact that the girl was a "social escort", she was only 17 at the time of the events.

Thariyan's defence lawyer however strongly objected to the in camera application, arguing that under the Women's Charter, this applies to those under 16.

The girl is now 20.

However the judge, who has discretion in granting such applications, agreed with the prosecution.

The court on Tuesday heard evidence from witnesses including representatives from SingTel, Hotel 81, as well as an officer from the Technology Crime Forensic Branch.

The trial continues.

I guess he will lose his career if convicted.

civil servants usually have soft landing because a lot of his rank and the fact that many organization would want his connection. All he has to do is just to change a new name.

SINGAPORE: The case of the third man claiming trial in the online sex vice ring will continue at a later date.

This comes after a pre-trial conference was called on Thursday for lawyers involved in 37-year-old Emlyn Thomas Thariyan's trial to decide on administrative matters.

This includes coming up with a list of witnesses for the trial.

The Singapore Armed Forces Lieutenant Colonel is accused of having paid sex with an underage girl in 2011.

A large part of the trial on Wednesday was heard in-camera or in closed chambers.

This was after the court granted the prosecution's request to protect the woman's identity.

Earlier on Thursday, Thariyan's lawyer, S Skandarajah, asked the court to allow Thariyan's brother and bailor to sit in during the in-camera hearings.

Mr Skandarajah cited that the two were "concerned parties" in the case.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Kavitha Uthrapathy objected to the application, saying that was not a valid reason.

The court did not grant Mr Skanarajah's application.

The trial dates will be finalised after the pre-trial conference.

Online vice ring: Army officer jailed for 5 months; stiffest punishment so far

http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking...unishment-so-f

A 38-year-old army officer was on Friday jailed for five months after paying an underage prostitute $500 for sex.

Emlyn Thomas Thariyan is the 28th man to be sentenced in a series of cases involving the same 17-year-old prostitute, who was part of an online vice ring. He is appealing both conviction and punishment - the stiffest to date. Thariyan committed the offence at Hotel 81 Bencoolen on Feb 18, 2011.

He is the fifth man to be sentenced after claiming trial, following 42-year-old Swiss banker Juerg Buergin, ex-navy engineer Kwa Wee Nam, 34, Indonesian Reyner Desvando Suhartono, 29, and business consultant Edward Whistler Goh Ngian Meng, 51.

Kwa, Suhartono and Goh each received four months' jail, while Buergin, a former executive director with UBS, was understood to have left Singapore in August after completing a 19-week jail term.

Five months is stiff punishment? I am torn over the punishment as others have gotten away with less and did this young girl have a pimp? Why did this one guy get more punishment than others?
