Case Of 11-Year-Old Girl Rape Transferred To High Court

 

A Suva Magistrates court yesterday transferred a rape case of an 11-year-old girl to the High Court.

Magistrate Waleen George made this ruling for a 45-year-old man who has been charged with two counts each of sexual assault and a count of rape.

It is alleged that the man between January 1 and September 30, at Nabua unlawfully and indecently assaulted an 11-year-old girl.

The man has sought Legal Aid assistance.

Ms George denied the man’s bail application on the grounds that he may interfere with the victim.

The case will be called in the High Court on October 28.
