A labourer was yes­ter­day charged with rap­ing a 13year-old girl.

Dand Europe, 24, of an East Bank De­mer­ara vil­lage, was brought be­fore Chief Mag­is­trate Ann McLen­nan in Ge­orge­town, where the charge was read to him dur­ing an in-cam­era hear­ing.It is al­leged that on Jan­uary 22nd, 2017, Europe en­gaged in sex­ual pen­e­tra­tion of the 13-yearold.

Europe was not re­quired to en­ter a plea to the in­dictable charge.

Ac­cord­ing to the pros­e­cu­tor, prior to the al­le­ga­tion Europe had been com­mu­ni­cat­ing with the teen via What­sApp and Face­book.

Al­though Europe was later granted his re­lease on $170,000 bail, he was or­dered not to go within 50 feet of the com­plainant, and to re­port to the Ruimveldt Po­lice Sta­tion ev­ery Fri­day. He was also or­dered to re­move from his premises un­til the com­ple­tion of the pre­lim­i­nary in­quiry into the charge against him. His next hear­ing is slated for July 18th.
