Alleged rape victim was not drunk
26 June 2012
Reports saying a woman who accused a New Zealand under 20 rugby player of raping her was drunk are incorrect the National Police reported today.
The alleged rape took place last Friday after the match between the Baby Boks and the Baby Blacks at Newlands Stadium in Cape Town.
The police’s Vish Naidoo said he attributed the findings to the nature of the crime being as traumatic as it was; they have contributed to the victim not having any recollection.
He added that the New Zealand media chose that comment and distorted it to sensationalise their story.
Naidoo said his up in arms in that regard and he refuses to speak to the New Zealand media on this particular matter.
