The girl explained in Chambers that the accused had been sending her to buy snacks and had been usually asking that he puts his private part in her mouth. She also explained that the accused had been putting his finger in her own private part.

A police medical report tendered in evidence in lieu of the matter indicates that the victim sustained “rupture of the hymen”.

No plea was taking and the matter was adjourned to Wednesday, 26 October 2016 and the accused remanded at the Pademba Road Male Correctional Centre.

A similar case of sexual penetration involving a-twelve old girl did not proceed beyond the taking of an oath by the said victim also in the Chambers of Magistrate Dr. Binneh Kamara. This particular matter will proceed on 24th October 2016 when the alleged victim will testify.

The alleged perpetrator was also remanded at the Pademba Road Male Correctional Centre.
