Case transferred to High Court for mention

Another rape accused has appeared in our courts.

Tausia Fabiyano appeared yesterday before Magistrate Cama Tuberi in a special court sitting.

The 21-year-old is charged with rape and has been further remanded in Police custody by the Labasa Magistrates Court.

It is alleged that Fabiyano raped a 27-year-old female in Savusavu two weeks ago.

Northern Divisional Police Prosecutor, Inspector Subramani Naidu, told the court that Fabiyano allegedly committed this offence while he was on bail for a similar offence he allegedly committed last month.

He also said that Fabiyano sexually assaulted an evacuee at one of the evacuation centres in Savusavu. Inspector Naidu told the court not to release Fabiyano on bail because rape and sexual assault cases were now prevalent.

The case has been transferred to the High Court in Labasa for mention tomorrow.
