Rape, porn case

A 44-year-old man charged with three counts of rape and one count of pornographic activity was remanded in police custody yesterday despite being granted bail by the Sigatoka Magistrates Court.

According to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Filipe Kepa failed to produce a surety in court.

Mr Kepa is alleged to have raped a young girl on three different occasions between 2013 and 2015.

He is also alleged to have participated in the recording of pornographic activity directly or indirectly involving the juvenile who was reported to be 15 years old when the alleged crimes were committed. The case has been transferred to the High Court in Lautoka and adjourned to November 2.

Meanwhile, an interim Domestic Violence Restraining Order was also imposed on Mr Kepa.
