Diplomat’s son escapes rape charges

The National Prosecuting Authority has decided not to prosecute the son of a British diplomat who was accused of rape. A 17-year-old Johannesburg girl, on holiday in Cape Town, laid the charges in the early hours of New Year’s day. She claimed the 21-year-old man had raped her twice at a party the night before. The NPA’s Makhosini Nkosi says police investigated the matter thoroughly, in consultation with the complainant and the relevant witnesses. He says the NPA is satisfied that there is no reasonable prospect of a successful prosecution and they have decided not to charge the diplomat's son.
