A MAN accused of rape told the police in his caution interview he was testing the girl, the High Court in Suva heard yesterday.

Josefa Cakau is charged with one count of rape.

Former police officer Moala Volauca gave evidence yesterday as the interviewing and investigating officer.

She said there was no witnessing officer when she interviewed Mr Cakau because Samabula Police Station didn't have the manpower.

Ms Volauca said Mr Cakau admitted the offence in the interview.

She said when asked, the accused admitted kissing the complainant forcefully.

She said the accused also admitted indecently assaulting her.

Ms Volauca told the court the accused was asked if he wanted to have sex with the complainant; his reply was "if she wanted him to".

The court will deliver a ruling today on a no-case-to-answer application by the defence.
