Suva High Court judge says a man had breached a trust when he raped his cousin sister at her home in her own bed.

Justice Vinsent Perera said: “To be raped by a cousin brother at her own house in her own bed after her 21st birthday party is not something a human being can easily live.”

Justice Perera jailed him for eight years.

“According to the victims impact statement, the victim has suffered a substantial emotional and psychological impact,” Justice Perera said.

The man had kissed her when she was on her way to her bedroom from the bathroom before he raped her. He was invited to her birthday party and stayed overnight.

Justice Perera said there was a breach of trust and “you raped her while she was in a vulnerable state where she was asleep after celebrating her 21st birthday.”
