Qamea Island 6 Rape Case Continues
Court

 

The trial of six men facing charges of rape and sexual assault against a minor in Qamea Island three years ago continues at the High Court Labasa.

The accused, who are in their 20s, earlier pleaded not guilty to the charges before Justice Vincent Perera earlier this week.

A name suppression order was issued for the victim and the accused because they were related.

There are currently three rape charges and one sexual assault charge and three of the men are being accused for assisting one of the alleged rapists.
