Court MinorA third individual has been charged in the matter of alleged inappropriate behaviour involving a minor.

Dominica News Online (DNO) has been reliably informed that police arrested the man on Sunday and charged him with indecent assault in the matter. He was also taken to the alleged crime scene and had a face to face with his accuser.

A magistrate was called in and according to the source, he was released on $15,000 bail and is due to appear in court on Monday. He was subsequently seen leaving police headquarters with his lawyer and other officias.

A businessman arrested earlier in connection with the same matter, was charged with six counts under the Sexual Offences Act: three counts of alleged indecent assault and three counts of alleged unlawful sexual intercourse. He appeared in court on Friday and was granted bail in the sum of $75,000.

Another man who spent Thursday night in police custody, being questioned in connection with the allegations, was charged with indecent assault. He was granted bail on Friday in the sum of $15,000 and is expected to appear in court on Monday.

Due to the nature of the allegations, the laws of Dominica stipulate that the name of all accused cannot be published.
