Police probe attack

RA provincial administrator Kelepi Kubunameca said cases like the recent rape of an international visitor at a resort in the area was not good for tourism development.

Mr Kubunameca said the rape of the tourist was unfortunate and discussions would be held at provincial meetings to emphasise the need to look after guests holidaying in the country.

"We cannot have people committing such acts at a time when we are trying to improve the tourism industry," he said.

"This will not augur well for the image of Rakiraki."

"This incident will be discussed thoroughly at a provincial meeting scheduled for the end of the month where all community leaders will be asked to impress upon their people the message of looking after guests in the country to protect the tourism industry."

It is alleged a Canadian couple was robbed at knifepoint early this week.

During the course of the alleged robbery, a female was allegedly raped.

Police confirmed last night that two men allegedly involved in the incident were in custody.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said some items that were stolen from the couple had been recovered.

"The special task force is continuing its investigations," she said.
