A 60-year-old woman charged with aiding the offence of rape is denied bail by the Nasinu Magistrates Court.

It is alleged that sometime in August the accused, Maria Rabaigau, aided a principal offender to commit a rape.

She appeared before Magistrate Charles Ratakele yesterday.

While refusing to grant Rabaigau bail, Magistrate Ratakele said: “Due to public interest, seriousness of the case and tension in the community there is a chance that the accused may interfere with the witness.”

Rabaigau has been further remanded in custody and will appear in the High Court in Suva with the principal offender on October 14.
