Man Allegedly Rapes Son

A 42-year-old man, who allegedly raped his 16-year-old son, appeared in the Labasa Magistrates Court yesterday.

He appeared before Magistrate Thushara Thennakoon.

He allegedly committed the offence last weekend in his Savusavu home when his wife was away in Nadi.

The victim, a secondary school student, ran to his neighbour seeking safety. The neighbour then reported the matter at the Savusavu Police Station.

Labasa Police Prosecutor Constable Nilesh Prasad informed the court that it was a serious offence and the case would be referred to the Office of Director of Public Prosecutions office.

Magistrate Thennakoon ordered that the man be further remanded in police custody as he was transferring this case to High Court of Labasa, where the accused will appear on October 27.
