Pastor charged with incest

Thursday, June 26, 2008

A church pastor accused of having a sexual affair with his daughter in the Northern Division has been charged with two counts of incest.

Divisional crime officer north Luke Rawalai said police charged the Assemblies of God church pastor yesterday and kept him in police custody.

Mr Rawalai said the pastor will appear in the Labasa court today.

The pastor was suspended from church duties after he was accused of having sex with his daughter between December 2006 and early 2007. It is alleged that he threatened his daughter not to tell anyone.

The matter came to light when the victim shared the experience at a church camp in Nadi two months ago and it was reported at the Nadi Police station.
