2:35 pm on 15 March 2013

The Supreme Court in Samoa is hearing evidence from two men who deny charges of raping and indecently assaulting a 63-year old Filipino woman last March.

The third defendant has admitted to the charges and will be sentenced next month.

The police say the trio had entered unlawfully into a house in Vaimea where the victim was staying and running a sewing business.
