HARPER, September 14 (LINA) -An Ivorian Refugee in Maryland County has been arraigned before the Fourth Judicial Circuit Court in Harper for alleged statutory rape.

The 30-year -old Ivorian from the Little Wlebo Refugee Camp was recently arrested and charged by the Liberian National Police.

The refugee only identified as Djabated reportedly raped a 14 year-old Ivorian refugee girl on the camp on 29th August.
