Tests Prove Alleged Serial Child Rapist Sane
Accused serial child rapist Mochammad Suharto David, also known as The Invisible Codet, has tested sane in psychiatric and psychological examinations ordered by the police when he claimed after his arrest in May that he had been forced to commit the acts through witchcraft.
Chief investigator Arief Sugiarto said: “From the results of psychological tests, there is no problem of mental disorder. The suspect had previously confessed to the deed because of supernatural promptings, but we don’t believe him.”
Sugiarto, speaking at a reconstruction of one of five child rapes allegedly carried out by Suharto, said the accused had carefully chosen his victims, all of whom he duped into going with him from their schools because (he said) their parents had asked him to pick them up.
“By choosing underage children as his victims he believed he was safe from identification. This was the case in Batam [where Suharto was suspected of serial child rape but fled to Bali before police could act] but one of his Bali victims was able to identify him,” Sugiarto said.
The series of abductions and rape of primary school age girls led to an outcry in Denpasar and to new school security measures including mandatory school-sourced ID for people picking children up at the gates.Filed under: Headlines
