Ex-Tax Employee Sentenced For Raping Teen Attache

A 37-year-old former senior officer of the then Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority has been jailed to 10 years and 11 months for sexual offences against his former attache.

The victim was 19 years old at the time of the incident which happened at the authority’s branch in the West on December 7, 2015.

Amitesh Vikash Chand was handed an aggregate sentence by the High Court in Lautoka by Justice Sunil Sharma on August 27.

Chand sexually, indecently assaulted and raped the victim while no one was around in the office.

It was when the victim started crying that Chand stopped. She relayed the incident to the staff members when they returned and Police were informed.
