ALL Nations Church head Reverend Epeli Ratabacaca filed an application in court on Friday for bail variation.
His lawyer Filimoni Vosarogo requested that the High Court in Suva lift the bail restrictions imposed on March 2.
Mr Vosarogo told Judge Justice Paul Madigan that his client had been invited to attend an All Nations conference in the United Kingdom from August 16 to 20, saying Mr Ratabacaca was to be guest speaker.
He said among the affidavit was an invitation letter, proposition with travel dates and details.
He said if allowed, his client would leave next Friday and return on August 28.
Mr Ratabacaca has denied a count of indecent assault and two counts of rape.
However, Director of Public Prosecutions Office lawyer Lisiate Fotofili said considering the seriousness of the alleged offences, the disclosures filed by State were pertaining to the case.
He said the complainant was allegedly brainwashed by the applicant (Mr Ratabacaca) and taken to a massage parlour, where the alleged incident took place.
Mr Fotofili said the complainant allegedly approached the applicant to pray over her as she was suffering from depression.
He said also included were statements from staff of the massage parlour, who allegedly could identify the applicant at the place and at the time of the complaint.
Mr Fotofili also suggested that Mr Ratabacaca make his presentation via skype.
Mr Vosarogo deferred on the issue, saying there were three different alleged incidents.
He also said the complainant had said she was only joking.
The credibility of that statement, Mr Vosarogo said, would be tested.
Justice Madigan will give his ruling in the matter tomorrow.
