Fiji Sun - - Fiji Today -

A 70-year-old man, who is al­leged to have sex­u­ally as­saulted a mi­nor, ap­peared be­fore Mag­is­trate Mos­ese Naivalu at the Ba Mag­is­trates Court yes­ter­day. The man is charged with one count of sex­ual as­sault of a sev­enyear-old boy in Na­vatu, Ba last Satur­day.

The al­leged in­ci­dent took place in a ru­ral set­tle­ment in Ba in­side a cy­clone do­nated tent. The mat­ter was re­ported to the Po­lice by the boy’s grand­mother. Mag­is­trate Naivalu ruled the ac­cused to be fur­ther re­manded be­cause of the se­ri­ous­ness of the crime. The case will be re­called on May 16. Kathrin Kr­ishna Edited by Filipe Naigulevu
