Date Set For Bail Hearing

A bail hearing date has been set for man charged with rape.

The accused appeared before High Court judge Justice Daniel Goundar yesterday.

State lawyer Lavenia Bogitini, from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, said the proposed agreed facts were submitted to the defence lawyer and the court.

She told the court that the response for the proposed agreed facts were yet to be delivered by the defence lawyer.

Ms Bogitini told the court that they are not objecting to the bail after they spoke to the victim and her family.

The complainant is a nine-year-old. She also informed the court that the victim and the accused were not related, but were from the same village in Kadavu.

She also told the court that they are relying on the medical evidence of the victim.

A production order was issued for the accused to be present in court for his bail hearing.

He has been further remanded until September 21 for the bail hearing.
