A MAN charged with the rape of a four-year-old girl told the High Court in Suva the child lied to the court.

The man is alleged to have forced his niece to perform oral sex on him.

The man, who is unrepresented, swore on the Bible the allegations by the prosecution and the alleged child victim were wrong.

He argued he did not commit the offence.

During cross examination, the accused said the child had lied. He said he had invited the girl into his house to eat rice and not to perform oral sex.

A day prior, police officers gave evidence.

Interviewing officer Detective Corporal Arvin Singh read out the caution interview in which the accused admitted committing the offence.

The matter continues before Justice Janaka Bandara.
