A 40-year-old man charged with two counts of rape and a count of sexual assault appeared before High Court Judge Justice Riyaz Hamza today.

The man had allegedly raped and sexually assaulted his 14-year-old niece in July this year in Nasinu.

The man has applied for bail.

He told the court that he will reside in Tailevu if released on bail.

Justice Hamza informed the court that keeping in mind that the complainant is a juvenile and is related to the accused, the prosecution needs to file a formal response by next Friday.

The case has been adjourned to next Friday.
