She has been deprived of her freedom, so that she cannot contact anyone to denounce her nephew whom she accuses of rape in an apartment in Vallée des Prêtres. The 63-year-old Grand Baie resident managed to escape from her sister’s home in Vallée des Prêtres, where she had been since February 18, on the afternoon of Saturday October 14, to return to her home in Grand Baie. She explained that she had been forced to consume an alcoholic beverage before being abused by her nephew.
In the company of her daughter, this 60-year-old woman went to the Grand Baie police station on the afternoon of Sunday October 15 to report a case of rape against her. The day before, she had run away from her sister’s house in Vallée des Prêtres, where she had been “sequestered”. Her sister did not want her son to be denounced to her relatives, let alone to the police.
A 63-year-old woman went to the Grand Baie police station on the afternoon of Sunday October 15 to report a case of rape. She suspects that her nephew raped her on February 25 of this year in an apartment in Vallée des Prêtres. On that day, her nephew was supposed to take her to a boarding house. The 60-year-old said she had been forced to consume an alcoholic beverage. She became dizzy and unconscious.
When she woke up, she found herself naked on a bed, her clothes strewn all over the floor. She got dressed and went back to her sister’s house in the same locality. She says she told her sister about her nephew. Since then, she had been deprived of her freedom. She had forbidden him to contact other family members or the police. In the late afternoon of Saturday October 14, she fled from her sister’s house to return to her brother’s home in Grand Baie.
