A MAN charged with the alleged rape of his 18-year-old stepdaughter told the court that the victim consented to sex.

He made these comments after the charge was read to him. He said he understood and pleaded not guilty.

The man appeared before High Court judge Justice Daniel Goundar.

The alleged incident took place between January 1, 2016, and January 2018 in Naitasiri.

He has been further remanded in custody and will reappear in court on April 1.

Meanwhile, a man also charged with rape and assault causing actual bodily harm appeared in court.

The alleged incident took place in Suva last December.

The charge was read out to Molitoni Vunivavalagi, which he said he understood and pleaded not guilty. He has been further remanded in custody.

His case has been adjourned to March 28.
