Muslim “Refugee,” 20, Raped a 10-Year-Old Boy and Claimed “It Was Culturally Acceptable”
Mufiz Rahaman, 20, told authorities it was culturally acceptable to sexually assault children in Myanmar — where he lived before coming to Australia, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Rahaman is a Rohingya Muslim — as was his young victim, the Downing Centre court heard.
The assault occurred on January 8, 2015 in a vacant Sydney club where the boy was living with his father.
Rahaman crept into the child’s bedroom while the boy’s father was preparing lunch and offered his victim money, according to documents tendered to the court.
“My Dad will hit me,” the victim said.
When he asked Rahaman, “what are you doing to this little boy? You’re an adult.”
The paedophile replied he wasn’t doing anything.
The court heard Rahaman had been sexually assaulted as a child before he moved to Australia.
Judge Andrew Scotting, who handed down a prison sentence of five years said Rahaman failed to understand his actions would “physically” and “psychologically damage” his young victim.
He also found the offender, who continued to claim sexual assault was culturally acceptable in his homeland, had not “accepted responsibility for his actions.”
Rahaman will be eligible for parole in March 2018 — but the judge noted he had a moderate to high risk of re-offending.
