Tuesday, April 29, 2014

A RAPE case where the husband of the complainant had offered her to a man cutting grass in his compound for payment has been transferred to the High Court.

The incident which happened in Nausori on April 21, this year has been further adjourned where the two men have been released on strict bail conditions.

It is alleged that the first accused who is charged with rape had visited the compound of the couple in a village in Nausori where he was to cut the grass in the couple's compound.

At the completion of his task, the husband then allegedly allowed the man to have sex with his wife as his form of payment.

The matter has been adjourned to May 9.
