Suva High Court Judge Justice Thushara Rajasinghe has acquitted the 36‑year‑old man who had been accused of raping a woman in a hotel in Suva in 2015.

Samisoni Tikoinasau was alleged to have raped and sexually assaulted a 25‑year‑old woman on August 7th, 2015.

While delivering his judgement, Justice Rajasinghe said that the evidence provided by the complainant was incomplete and shaky.

The Judge said in her evidence the complainant also said that she was ashamed to leave the hotel in the day time but she wasn't ashamed to enter the hotel.
