Alleged Rapist Bailed

The 26-year-old man, who was charged for allegedly raping a 24-year-old woman last weekend, was released on a $1000 bail bond by Justice Paul Madigan at the High Court in Labasa yesterday.

The suspect’s lawyer argued in court that the prosecution claimed his client might interfere with witnesses, but did not tender any evidence to prove their claim.

The lawyer told Justice Madigan that his client was a court clerk and had been falsely implicated in the case.

On his client’s behalf he submitted that his client had wanted to go back to work because this was his first offence.

Justice Madigan released the suspect, who had been in remand for three days.

The accused was ordered to report to Labasa Police Station every Wednesday; not to leave Vanua Levu; not to interfere with Prosecution witnesses; surrender all travel documents and have a fixed residential address.
