Father Charged For Two Counts Of Rape, To Appear In Nadi Court Tomorrow

A 29-year old man has been charged with 2 Counts of Rape by police at the Nadi Police Station. It is alleged that the man had raped his 7 month old daughter on two occasions since October 2015.

The accused remains in police custody and is expected to be produced at the Nadi Magistrates Court tomorrow morning.

We would like to plead with mothers or guardians to be mindful of their children especially the vulnerable group. We request that mothers continue to examine and monitor children’s behavior as such behaviors may give away signs of being sexually abused.

It is also important that they continue to talk to their children about safety tips and encourage them to confide in someone they trust so that they would be able to report sexual abuse cases to the police.

We will continue to work tirelessly to bring perpetrators of such offences to task and those caught in the act will face the full brunt of the law.
