Three British men have been sentenced to caning after sexually assaulting a woman whilst on a stag party in Singapore.

Khong Tam Thanh, 22, Le Michael, 24 and Vu Thai son, also 24, were initially charged with raping the 23-year-old Malaysian woman but pleaded guilty to the lesser charges of sexual assault and outrage of modesty.

The court heard how the men took it in turns to have sex with the woman as she lay unconscious in the hotel room.

The Judge described their behaviour as “reprehensible” and sentenced them to between five and six-and-a-half years in jail with between five and eight strokes of the cane.

Last year the men travelled to Singapore for a bachelor party for Khong’s brother.

After attending a music festival the stag group of nine men met with a woman who agreed to go back to the hotel with one of the members of the group.

Later Khong, Le and Vu quietly entered the hotel room as she lay unconscious and had sex with her. She work up to find Le assaulting her.

Sentencing the three, Judicial Commissioner Hoo Sheau Peng said: “While she was asleep, and quite unable to protect herself, they took advantage of her vulnerable state so as to commit these serious sexual crimes… In doing so, they showed no respect for her dignity and autonomy, and no regard for any harm and hurt they might cause to her.”
