SINGAPORE — Four men have been hauled to court and charged with multiple counts of conspiring to rape one another’s wives.

Three other men are also accused of raping the women, but it is not known how they knew the group of four husbands, or if they are married.

The seven Singaporeans appeared in a district court last month and were all denied bail.

Court documents stated that they allegedly committed the string of sexual offences from around 2010 to 2018 in various locations, such as Housing and Development Board flats in the north-eastern area of Singapore.

All involved cannot be named due to court orders to protect the alleged victims’ identities, which were withdrawn from court documents. 

Because of this, TODAY will be naming the four husbands A, B, C and D. The other three men will be named E, F and G.

There are at least four women involved.

Rape and sexual assault by penetration both carry a maximum punishment of 20 years’ jail, as well as the possibility of a fine or caning. Offenders above the age of 50 cannot be caned by law.

These are the details of the alleged offences. Court documents did not state which woman was married to which man:
