BANGLADESHI GETS 17 YRS JAIL & 24 STROKES FOR RAPING HIKER AT MACRITCHIE

A 24 year old Bangladeshi construction worker was sentenced to 17 years jail and 24 strokes of the cane for raping a woman at MacRitchie Reservoir Park in 2015. Pramanik Liton was waiting for an easy target along the Lornie trail when he saw the victim, a 40 year old Chinese woman. He forced her to perform sexual acts and threatened her with a 16cm knife. He denied the charges even though his semen was found on the victim. He claimed he did not touch her and was just trying to scare her when "she died out of fear".

The motorcyclist suffered extensive brain and spinal cord injuries, and died three days later. The Bangladeshi had been working in Singapore for 10 years. Which brings to mind this question. If you come form a foreign country and have a driving licence, is it just enough to convert this driving licence into a Singapore one?
