A 23-year-old man charged for the rape of a fellow volunteer was been granted bail yesterday by the High Court of Suva.

Accused Eddie Murphy was part of a volunteer group along with the victim conducting projects in Namosi when he allegedly raped her.

Justice Achala Wengapulli granted him a surety bail whereby he has to present two sureties who will pay $1000 each.

His bail conditions were not to offend, not to interfere with the prosecution witnesses, surrender all his travel documents, not to change his residential address and to report to the Nasinu Police Station every Saturday between 7am to 7 pm.

The matter has been adjourned to July 20.
