The 27-year-old unemployed man charged in relation to the alleged rape of a 21-year-old woman in Nasinu earlier this year has had his case transferred to the High Court in Suva.

Vilikesa Nacaka is charged with one count of rape.

He allegedly befriended the young woman through Facebook.

He appeared before Magistrate Charles Ratakele at the Nasinu Magistrates Court in Valelevu, Nasinu, yesterday.

Magistrate Ratakele said because the offence was an indictable one, the accused would be remanded in custody before the case would be heard for first call at the High Court in Suva next Friday. Edited by Naisa Koroi
