Bail for 2 on rape charge

Mere Naleba
Tuesday, March 04, 2014

TWO men accused of rape have been granted bail after their lawyers reassured High Court judge Justice Salesi Temo their clients would not interfere with the complainant or State witnesses.

The two are alleged to have raped a co-worker.

DPP lawyer Paulini Madanavosa told Justice Temo she had spoken to the complainant regarding security issues if the two accused were released on bail.

Ms Madanavosa said the complainant was only worried about meeting the two at work, but other than that she did not mind if they were granted bail.

"She doesn't want them to be in the same place as her, and she doesn't want them to be in there," she told the court last Friday.

"She is concerned about that. She feels insecure and there is a possibility of interference".

Justice Temo asked Ms Madanavosa to explain the grounds she would rely on for possible conviction.

Ms Madanavosa replied she had the complainant's statement, a medical statement that supported the complainant's statement and one of the two accused persons had confessed to committing the alleged rape.

The case has been adjourned to June next year.
