Trial for school teacher
November 28, 2017 3:28 am
A class four teacher from Nasinu appeared in the Suva High Court today charged with four counts of rape and nine counts of sexual assault of students.
A twelve year old girl testified that she was called by the accused to his classroom after school hours in 2012.
She said in court the teacher also called her friend and they had to go to him one by one.
When it was her turn to go, she saw the accused sitting at the back of the classroom, masturbating and he told her to touch her private parts.
She was scared and refused.
When cross-examined by the State Counsel about why she was scared, the student replied it was not right for a teacher to do that.
She also told the court it happened a couple of times to her and some other classmates, when the accused used to call them to play carem board games.
The student and her friend later reported the matter to a Class Eight teacher.
The trial continues tomorrow.
