Dad of UK's worst rapist jailed for life, breaks silence, says he got what he deserves

The father of Reynhard Sinaga, the worst rapist in British legal history, has said his son's punishment "fits his crimes" after he was jailed for life.

Sinaga, a 36-year-old PhD student from Indonesia, was found guilty of 159 sexual offences against 48 men.

He picked up his victims outside clubs in Manchester and lured them to his flat, where he drugged and assaulted them while filming the attacks.

On Monday, a judge jailed Sinaga for life, with a minimum term of 30 years.

As Sinaga's family and friends come to terms with his fate, they have painted a picture of his life in Indonesia before he became a serial sexual predator.

Speaking for the first time since his son was jailed, his father Saibun Sinaga told BBC Indonesian over the phone: "We accept the verdict. His punishment fits his crimes. I don't want to discuss the case any further."

Sinaga's friends at the University of Indonesia say he was a flamboyant and popular student.

"He was very social, friendly, easy to get along with and fun to work on projects with," one friend, who wished not to be named, said.

She lost contact with him when he went abroad to continue his studies in the UK in 2007.
