'Alleged midnight rape' case

Mere Naleba
Saturday, May 03, 2014

HIGH Court judge Justice Salesi Temo has asked the prosecution lawyer in a rape case to sort the views of the complainant on the issue of bail for the accused person.

The accused who yesterday pleaded not guilty to one count of rape has been remanded in custody until the court is informed of the complainant's stand on the bail issue.

The court heard the man on March 8 this year entered the house of the 33-year-old complainant in a village in Rewa and raped her while she slept beside her husband.

"I see that the accused is alleged to have raped the complainant while she was sleeping beside her husband, this is a case of alleged midnight rape," Justice Temo said.

Prosecution did not object to bail but was advised to cross check with the complainant on her views of bail being granted.

The case has been adjourned to May 29.
