Sex assault accused to appear in court today
A man is expected to appear in the Labasa Magistrates Court today charged with sexual assault of a 11-year-old student. Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said the man, in his early 50s, allegedly sexually assaulted his niece four times between January 2015 and August 2016. “The incident was reported at the Nabouwalu Police Station last Friday,” Ms Naisoro said.
It is believed that the report was lodged by a primary school teacher after the victim confided in her.
