Rape trial concludes

Mere Naleba
Friday, May 02, 2014

THE caution interview of one of four youths accused of raping and committing an unnatural offence on two young boys in a village in a maritime island was read out in the High Court in Suva yesterday.

The statement of the first accused was read out in court where he admitted raping the boy on different occasions from 2007 until 2012.

The accused, in his caution interview, told the interviewing officer that at times, the young boy would come to him to ask for sex.

The matter only came to light after the teacher of one of the two complainants noticed blood stains on the chair of the young boy.

Upon enquiring, the young boy informed his teacher of the rape incidents that were happening ever since he was in Year 3.

Prosecution and defence lawyers will submit closing submissions early Monday morning before High Court judge Justice Paul Madigan.
