A man has had his sentence increased to seven years by the Ontario Court of Appeal for sexually assaulting his teenaged niece from Fiji 140 times.

The Montreal gazette reports the man was previously sentenced to three years imprisonment by the Ontario Superior Court in June last year after a jury convicted him of sexual assault, sexual exploitation and invitation to sexual touching.

Evidence produced in court during his nine-day trial was that the15-year-old girl came from Fiji to Canada in 1986 to get an education and lived with her uncle and aunt, whom she considered as parents.

In their ruling the Justices at the Appeals Court said the case presented the court with a variant of the pattern of conduct of adult abusers in a position of trust over children.

The Court heard the child was a teenager, but her extra vulnerability came from the fact that she was an immigrant to Canada and she was in his power in every way.

The Court heard the uncle gave her birth control and told her that if she told anyone about the sexual activities, she would be deported to Fiji.

The girl finally got so desperate to leave the situation and asked her aunt to arrange a marriage for her, and she finally left for Vancouver in 1991.

In its assessment of the sentence, the Appeals Court said the uncle had shown no remorse for taking advantage of the fact that the girl was young and vulnerable as a new immigrant.

The Court also heard these circumstances changed the course of the victim’s life and it resulted in a forced arranged marriage which turned out to be abusive.
