The mother of the man described as Britain’s most prolific rapist has said that she still sees her son as “my baby” he is not a rapist and he is not gay.
Reynhard Sinaga was financed throughout his studies since 2007 by his wealthy Indonesian family.
His mother desperately wanted her son to return to help run their palm oil plantation and refinery.
But the 36-year-old refused and instead had other ideas and he pursued his perverted desires and sexually violated 48 men at his Manchester city-center flat.
Police believe he could have abused up to 195 males in total within that flat.
Police believe he may have abused at least 195 males in total.
His mother Normawait has spoken to The Sunday Times Newspaper and described the moment she flew over to visit her son in hospital following his arrest in 2017 after his final victim regained consciousness during his ordeal and came around and turned on Sinaga in self-defense and attacked him.
She told The Sunday Times “Imagine a small Indonesian man being beaten up by a big, tall westerner. I wondered if the other person had made up the story.”
Mrs Sinaga said her son was a “quiet boy” who went to church in Indonesia every Sunday morning where she encouraged him to play the piano.
She said she begged him to return to his home country but he told her he wanted to follow his ambition of becoming a lecturer.
She said: “He said Indonesia was not a good place to live for him and he felt comfortable living in Manchester.”
The newspaper reported Mrs Sinaga struggles to believe her son was capable of his crimes, and she did not even know he was gay.
She said: “We are a good Christian family who do not believe in homosexuality. He is my baby.”
Sinaga went out in the early hours of the morning, hunting for lone, drunk young men around nightclubs near his flat.
He posed as a Good Samaritan who offered them a floor to sleep on or promised them more drink.
His victims – who were mainly heterosexual – had little or no memory of the hours that followed as Sinaga repeatedly raped many of them.
It is thought he laced alcoholic drinks with a drug such as GHB, also known as liquid ecstasy.
Sinaga was jailed for life with a minimum term of 30 years after he was found guilty of a total of 159 offences committed between January 2015 and May 2017 – 136 counts of rape, 13 counts of sexual assault, eight counts of attempted rape and two counts of assault by penetration.
