The High Court in Suva has given the State 28 days to file information and disclosures in a case involving a 29-year-old man accused of four counts of rape.

The accused, who is in remand, was not in court when the matter was called yesterday before judge Justice Salesi Temo.

The alleged incidents took place last year when the accused and the victim lived in the same house.

State lawyer Meli Vosawale told the court that the victim was 16 years old.

The matter was adjourned to June 29.
