Men charged for alleged rape of minors

Two men aged 21 years were charged and produced at the Nadi Magistrates court and remanded for a case of alleged rape involving a 17-year-old.

The two allegedly committed the offence on the morning of the 16th of May in a vacant home in a village where they and the victim are from.

The matter was reported by the victim’s parents after they were alerted by a relative that the victim was seen inside the vacant home.

The two were charged with one count of rape and produced at the Nadi Magistrates Court yesterday.

They have been remanded to reappear on the 30th of May, 2024 in the Lautoka High Court.

In another case of alleged rape, a 33-year-old man was produced in the Nasinu Magistrates Court and remanded, for allegedly raping his 15-year-old niece.

The matter was reported to Nasinu Police after the victim relayed the alleged incident to her mother.

On the 10th of May, 2024, the accused had allegedly entered the victim’s home drunk and forced the victim into the restroom where he performed sexual acts.

The victim’s father was attending to their farm near their home, and the victim was at home with her 6-year-old sister.

The accused has been remanded for 14 days to await his next court appearance.
