A 20-year-old woman living in the Eastern village of Briéee Verdière
alleges that she has been raped and has received death threats from a
35-year-old teacher. In a complaint filed last Friday to the police,
the woman said that the teacher, her neighbour, raped her on July 20
last and made death threats against her to keep silent over the
matter. Faced with these allegations, the teacher claims the
accusations are totally unfounded. He was arrested Saturday and
appeared before the Flacq district court on a provisional charge of
rape this Monday. In his testimony to the police, the teacher claims
that the woman acted out of revenge following numerous disputes
between him and his accuser's family. According to police reports, the
woman said she was raped inside her own house and didn't try to scream for help during her ordeal for fear that the suspect would harm her baby, who is now just over 12 months old.
