Al­leged rapist ap­pears in court in­tox­i­cated

Fiji Sun - - Comment -

A man charged with rape ap­peared at the Suva High Court in an in­tox­i­cated con­di­tion yes­ter­day.

The case has been ad­journed to Oc­to­ber 11, to fix a trial date.

Judge Jus­tice Riyaaz Hamza has warned Paula Navukula that on the date he has to come to court in a fit state with proper at­tire. De­fence coun­sel Talei Kean as­sured the court that she had coun­selled Navukula upon arrival and had scolded him for his be­hav­iour.

It is al­leged that be­tween May 29 and 30, this year at Navua, Navukula raped a 25-year-old woman.

The state was rep­re­sented by Lave­nia Bog­i­tini.
