A case involving a man who is charged with rape and indecent assault where a nine-year-old boy and seven-year-old girl were involved has been transferred to the High Court.

63-year-old Peni Namarua, appeared in the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday before Magistrate Joji Bosiwaqa.

Magistrate Boseiwaqa transferred the case because of the severity of the charges.

Namarua is charged with one count of rape and two counts of indecently assaulting a person. The alleged incidents took place in 2013 at Tamavua Village.

The accused is being remanded in Police custody and will appear before the High Court in Suva this month on the 19th.
