TOO light, too short, not good enough.
This was what one of the two young boys who went through months of physical abuse under their "godfather" John, 46, an electronic scientist, said of his six-month jail term. John had appealed against the sentence handed down to him by a district court in March for two charges of ill-treating a child in his care.
Sometimes John caned the boys so badly that they bled. The two brothers, now aged 11 and 13, were once caned 20 and 30 times respectively for falling asleep while studying.
The 11-year-old boy said he was not saddened by the fact that John will have to spend time behind bars.
