Rape accused pastor gets bail

The pastor, who was arrested last week after being accused of raping a church member, has been released on bail by the High Court.

Stabroek News was informed that the pastor was released yesterday.

He had been arrested at his Diamond, East Bank Demerara home last Thursday based on the complaint by a church member, whom he had been counselling.

Stabroek News understands that the victim reportedly told the police that the incident occurred last month, when the pastor reportedly invited her to his house for dinner and made sexual advances towards her.

The police are expected to conduct further investigations in the matter.
