Nadi businessman charged with rape granted bail

January 18, 2019 4:48 pm

A 58-year-old businessman from Nadi who allegedly raped his 24-year-old employee, was granted bail by the Lautoka Magistrates Court as he is a kidney patient.

The man is charged with one count of rape and one count of attempted rape.

It is alleged the accused raped his 24-year-old employee on two different occasions between December last year and January this year.

He was granted bail with a sum of three thousand dollars with two sureties, after a medical certificate was shown in court highlighting the accused had a kidney transplant.

The accused surrendered his passport and a stop departure is also part of his bail conditions.

His case has been transferred to the Lautoka High Court.

It will be recalled on the 13th of next month.
