A 49-year- old man was found guilty for rape by the Suva High Court yesterday.

Peni Naisau is charged for the rape of a 7-year- old girl on December 12, 2012 to which he had pleaded not guilty.

Judge Justice Achala Wengappuli said: “I direct myself in accordance with the law and the evidence which I discussed in my summing up to the assessors.

“The assessors have found the evidence of prosecution as truthful and reliable as they unanimously found the accused guilty to the count of rape.

“The inconsistencies of the evidence of the victim were also highlighted with suitable cautions.”

The court has been adjourned to August 26 for sentencing.
