Girl, 10, claims rape

POLICE are now investigating a 31-year-old man who allegedly raped a 10-year-old girl in Nasinu.

Police became involved in the matter after the girl reportedly told a relative she was raped on two occasions by the man who lives near the complainant's home.

According to a police report, the alleged incidents happened when the young girl was returning from school and another while she was on her way to school.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the complainant told a relative of the alleged rapes after she was questioned by the concerned relative on why she was not doing well in school.

The report stated the man is alleged to have shown the young girl pornography before allegedly raping her.

"We are once again reminding members of the public that the Fiji Police Force has a policy of zero tolerance on cases of violence against women and children," Ms Naisoro said.

"The fact that cases continue to be recorded is a serious concern and as rightly stated by the Prime Minister there is a dire need for a change of mind-set.

"It is sad to note that there are certain individuals who continue to prey on the lives of innocent women and children considering no one would like to have the same done to their relative or loved one."

She said the force will continue to work hard towards the elimination of such crimes.

"Our women and children deserve a lot more and we must work together if we are to achieve that," she said.
