THE trial of an uncle accused of raping his 17-year-old niece continued in the High Court in Suva yesterday.
The second witness to take the stand was Dr Talei Tamaka who had medically examined the victim following the alleged incident.
Dr Tamaka told the court while there were some injuries on the victim, she concluded the victim had gone through some trauma because of her facial expression and body language on the day of the medical observation.
She informed the court the victim was from an island and had come to stay at her uncle's place to further her education.
The court heard he had used sexual advances on her; sometimes he would tell her to cook and that they would have a sexual relationship later.
Dr Tamaka told the court this happened almost on a daily basis and at midnight as relayed to her by the victim.
Dr Tamaka informed the court the victim told her during her medical examination that phone calls to her by her uncle would make her uncomfortable.
The alleged incidents took place between April 1 and May 31, 2012 in Nausori.
The accused, who had pleaded not guilty to the offence when the charge was read out to him in court, appeared before Justice Prabaharan Kumararatnam.
The trial continues today.
