Govt appeals ‘unduly lenient’ sentence for UK’s most prolific rapist Jan 17, 2020 0 1180 12345 London: Britain’s attorney-general on Thursday appealed against a minimum 30-year prison term given to an Indonesian man described as the country’s worst-known sex offender, calling it “unduly lenient”.Geoffrey Cox asked the Court of Appeal to consider imposing a “whole life order” on mature student Reynhard Sinaga, 36, so he is never eligible for release from jail. Sinaga was convicted of 159 offences, including 136 rapes and eight attempted rapes, at four separate trials which began in June 2018 and ended last December. A judge in Manchester said he would serve 30 years in jail as part of a life sentence for a catalogue of offences on unsuspecting men he drugged and assaulted.
