A jury has viewed a gruesome video of former British banker Rurik Jutting describing how he raped, tortured and murdered two women.
31-year-old Jutting, a former securities trader, originally from the UK was working in Hong Kong when the murders of 23-year-old Sumarti Ningsih and 26-year-old Seneng Mujiasih took place in 2014, reports Sky News.
Ningsih, from Indonesia, was visiting the country on a tourist visa. Her mutilated body was found in a suitcase on Jutting’s balcony, while Mujiasih, a domestic helper, was found lying inside with severe wounds on her neck and buttocks.
In the first video, Jutting can allegedly be heard torturing Ningsih, saying:
Do you want me to hit you? If you say yes, I hit you once. If you say no I hit you twice. If you scream I will punch you, you understand?
In a second video, Jutting stands shirtless in his apartment, recording himself on his mobile phone.
He can be heard to say:
My name is Rurik Jutting. About five minutes ago I just killed, murdered, this woman here.
The camera pans down to show the body of Ningsih, lying face down on the bathroom floor.

She gave her name as Alice. She was Indonesian and she worked as a prostitute.
It’s Monday night. I’ve held her since early Saturday. I have raped her repeatedly, I have tortured her badly. Jesus Christ.
This is the first person I have ever killed. I murdered her – I cut her throat in the bathroom.
To be precise I cut her throat while forcing her, well she was voluntarily, bending over on her hands and knees licking the dirty toilet bowl.
I’ve done quite a bit of coke. That’s why drug dealers need to stop dealing large amounts of drugs. It is not a good business policy to supply someone with enough cocaine for three days.
I enjoyed torturing her. I used her as a sex object. I thought it would be easy, it would have been easier to strangle her now my bathroom is a fucking mess. I must come across as a fucking arsehole.Advertisement
To be honest these are the actions of someone who shouldn’t really be in society.
She was crying. She was the bravest person I have ever met. Her will to live was amazing.
Jutting called police to his apartment after killing Ms Mujiasih – who he met in a bar – and officers discovered her body in a pool of blood and that of Ms Ningsih wrapped in plastic and stored in a suitcase on the balcony.
The Cambridge graduate admits killing both Ningsih and Mujiasih, but denies murder on the grounds of diminished responsibility, claiming he started hallucinating after using cocaine.
However, he has been evaluated fit to stand trial and if convicted faces a mandatory life sentence.
The trial continues.
