Accused waits on sureties

BAIL was granted to a man alleged to have raped his niece in Navua last year.

The High Court in Suva granted the accused bail but he has been kept in remand until his two sureties sign bail papers.

The court granted bail and told him that he had to adhere to the bail conditions which were to report once a week to the Navua Police Station, not to reoffend and not to interfere with prosecution witnesses including the complainant.

State prosecution informed the court that the alleged rape victim had relocated to another address, far from the accused.

Earlier, the charge was put to the accused in the iTaukei language.

The accused told the court that he understood the charge and pleaded not guilty.

It is alleged that between December 6 and December 7 last year, the accused allegedly raped his niece.

The case will be called again on June 9.
