Man, 27, Remanded After Rape Charges

A 27-year-old Suva man has been remanded in custody after he was charged with rape of two mi­nors.

He appeared before Nasinu Magistrate Sufia Hamza last Thursday charged with two counts of rape of two complainants under the age of 15 years.

The complainants in the matter are both 14-year-old boys.

The alleged incident occurred between December 1, 2017, and December 31, 2017.

Police prosecutor Constable Satereki Mocevakaca objected to the accused’s application for bail on the grounds that the complainants were vulnerable because they were under the age of 15 years.

He also said the offence was indictable and a mat­ter of public interest.

Constable Mocevakaca also informed the court that the accused and the complainants were not re­lated, but live in the same neighbourhood in Suva.

The matter was transferred to the High Court in Suva and would be on first call on November 9.
