Othello-reciting Tamil rapist jailed in BritainMay 24th, 2008 - 8:35 pm ICT by admin
London, May 24 (IANS) An Oxford University-educated Tamil banker who quoted from a Shakespeare play as he raped a woman has been sentenced to over three years of imprisonment by a British court. Paramasivan Sivasothy, an investment banker, recited lines from “Othello” to his terrified victim while raping her, Southwark Crown Court heard Friday.
The woman managed to call the police while his back was turned and officers recorded Sivasothy as he carried out the “brutal, ugly and repugnant” attack, the prosecution said.
A tape of the woman’s ordeal was played in court.
Sivasothy, who lives in north London, pleaded guilty to the rape and assault charges.
Judge Deborah Taylor ordered that Sivasothy serve a minimum of three years and 40 days before being considered for release.
