Trio tell of sex slavery

THREE young women gave evidence in the High Court yesterday of how they used to work for two men as sex workers while they were in high school.

Inoke Raikadroka and Mohammed Sheefaz Sagaitu are charged with slavery and domestic trafficking in which the pair allegedly made young teenage girls have sex with businessmen.

Justice Paul Madigan made an order for suppression of the identity of the witnesses.

The court heard Mr Raikadroka, also known as Kiki, first operated out of the Elixir Apartments in Suva where the contacted clients would come and have sex with the girls.

One of the girls told the court she lost her virginity as a sex worker. She said she was accompanied by another girl on the first occasion to show her what needed to be done.

The court was told the client would pay $200 to Mr Raikadroka who would then give the girls about $20.

The court was told Mr Raikadroka then took the girls to Raiwai where similar incidents took place.

The girls told the court it was at Raiwai they met the second accused, Mr Sagaitu, also known as Margie, who would look for clients for the girls.

The court was told Mr Raikadroka later took the girls to Nadi where they would meet up with clients and go to the house they stayed in at Martintar.

The court was told the girls couldn't go out without the permission of Mr Raikadroka.

The case continues today.
