Complainant Testifies How Cousin Brother Allegedly Raped Her

A 15-year-old yesterday testified how her cousin brother allegedly raped her.

The 26-year-old accused is facing one count of sexual assault and two counts of rape.

It is alleged that on August 24, 2019, the complainant was scolded and assaulted by her grandmother when she was confronted if she was smoking.

It is alleged that the offender, who was at the scene, took the complainant away in a bid to protect her.

When they had reached their destination, the offender asked the complainant if she did smoke but she denied.

It is alleged that the offender lit up a smoke for the complainant and recorded her on video.

Thereafter, the offender told the complainant to go into the toilet where he locked it and raped her.

It is alleged that the offender told the complainant not to tell anyone.

The next day, he allegedly raped her again.

The trial continues before Justice Goundar today.
