A convicted rapist has appeared in a Nuku’alofa court for allegedly sexually abusing another male prisoner in Hu’atolitoli prison.

Saimone Vaka was charged with forcible sodomy and assault.

Vaka allegedly covered the victim’s mouth before sodomizing him, Taimi ‘O Tonga newspaper has reported.

The incident occurred in February or March and the charges were made after the victim complaint to a prison officer.

The victim was in custody after Police charged him with burglary, the paper said.

It is not Vaka’s first time facing sexual assault charges.

As Kaniva news reported last year Vaka was found guilty of raping a woman in ʻAnanā

He is currently serving his own jail term for that rape.

In that case, the court was told Mr. Vaka persuaded the victim to drive with him to a bush area in ‘Ananā where he had non-consensual sexual intercourse with her in the front passenger seat of his car.

When they arrived at the scene, Mr. Vaka parked the car near a lagoon and began assaulting the victim.
