A man was yesterday found not guilty by the High Court in Suva after he was charged with one count of murder in 2010.

Justice Priyantha Fernando in handing down his judgment said he had reviewed the evidence adduced in the trial and found that the unanimous opinion of the assessors is not perverse.

Justice Fernando said he agreed with the assessors and found the accused not guilty of the offence and said the case had relied on weather the victim had consented to have sex.

During the trial the court heard the victim who is 22 was drunk and did not remember what had happened at the time and the only person she could recall coming home with her that night was the accused.

The court also heard the victim was sitting next to the accused during their drinking session and the accused did not force her to have sexual intercourse when he took her home.

The Director of Public Prosecution has been given 28 days to appeal.
