Teacher Nakete Acquitted Of Rape

A school teacher who was charged with two counts of rape walked away a free man yesterday.

Kaio Nakete was acquitted of the charges by the High Court in Suva.

He appeared before Justice Achala Wengapulli.

While delivering his judgment, Justice Wengapulli said evidence by the prosecution presented through the 24-year-old complainant was found not to be the truth and insufficient to establish the guilt of the accused.

Nakete was represented by Legal Aid lawyer, Lavenia Raisua.
