A TAXIDRIVER who allegedly raped a co-worker had his interview read out in the High Court in Suva yesterday.

It is alleged the man forcefully had sex with the base controller after being involved in a drinking binge.

Inspector Epeli Senibeci told the court the accused was interviewed a day after the alleged offence.

The court heard the police noticed a cut on the accused's face while interviewing him and he was provided medical attention.

The court was told the cut was a result of a fight with another driver who had been drinking with the accused and the victim.

On March 5, 2011, after the drinking had ended, the accused and the victim went to Nasinu.

In his interview, the accused told the police he and the victim went to his nephew's house to sleep. He then proceeded to have sex with her.

In his interview, the accused said the sex was consensual.

The court heard that during the interview the man was asked by the police if he had threatened the woman to have sex with him. He denied this.

The accused told the police he had consensual sex with the victim.
