KZN man denies hurting raped girl

2012-02-16 22:06

Johannesburg - A KwaZulu-Natal man told the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Thursday he had no idea how a 6-year-old girl he is accused of raping was injured.

Gerald Rosselloty, 40, made the denial while being cross-examined by State advocate Dorian Paver.

Rosselloty did not deny that he picked up the child and spent the day with her, but said he did not know he it came about that she had cigarette burns and a bleeding vagina when he dropped her off.

Paver said a stranger saw she was in distress and saw blood on her clothes soon after she was dropped off

She was taken to hospital, where her injuries had to be surgically repaired. Later, she was treated by a gynaecologist in hospital.

Her mother told the court that six years after the incident the child's experience still haunted her. She would not go to the bathroom alone, her schoolwork suffered and she was still being counselled.

The rape took place in September 2006.

On Tuesday, in a room adjoining the court, the girl - now aged 11 - told the court through an intermediary that Rosselloty had told her he had a present for her.

She said he made her strip, threw her on a bed, smeared cream on himself and raped her.

In charges unrelated to the rape charge, Rosselloty is also being prosecuted for alleged arson and the murder of his girlfriend Nokwazi Ntuli on April 17 2010.

The trial resumes on April 2.

      By the way - feel free to take me on, on matters theological. Some of the atheists on this site have more conviction than you ever will. In Christian love ..... you are nothing but a deluded soul and I wouldn't blame anyone for dismissing your self-righteous opinion.

      John - 2012-02-16 23:52

      Scouter...where does Theology fits in this topic? Deluded soul?.... Please don't include christianity here, becouse as you know "invaine calls" are not accepted.

    absolute trash - the earth should be rid of these devils.

  • Scouter - 2012-02-16 23:00

    This is the sort of person I would consider it my duty to remove from society. Something I would not do lightly, however.

      Arthur - 2012-02-17 04:08

      and Jesus said "Let the person without sin throw the first stone". Don't get me wrong. I am not defending this man. If he is guilty... his day will come, eventually!!!

      John - 2012-02-17 05:22

      @Arthur Please leave Scouter alone. He has the short man syndrom and belives that he is "The Choosen One". Scouter...stop watching Chick Noris movies. It's not healty for you.

      Chuck Norris was found dead in his hotel bathroom this morning. Don't worry, he's ok now!

  • TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-02-17 01:41

    Theb rape took place in Dec 2006? And she has to face this piece of offal AGAIN after six years? Disgraceful, disgusting, and a shame on our Courts and Police Services.

      Arthur - 2012-02-17 04:10

      She doesn't have to face him. She testifies from outside the courtroom through a video feed. She doesn't even see him.

  • myfriendshane - 2012-02-17 04:42

    This is beyond belief. Burn him !!

  • seymour.howe - 2012-02-17 05:45

    Six years to bring a serious crime (that would previously have warranted the death penalty) to Court? OMG, what a sick Justice system we have! And Juju is there saying the Judicial system is run by Whites? If this was the case, the man would have been tried, convicted and sentenced 5years and ten months ago. NO DEATH SENTENCE? MINIMUM SENTENCE OF CASTRATION PLUS 50 YEARS FOR RAPING A MINOR!

      JohhnyBGood - 2012-02-17 08:47

      I will bring the blunt knife. . .

  • Silvana - 2012-02-17 06:04

    I couldn't read past the 1st paragraph. It's just so sickening. Shove a gumpole up his a*#end tell him you don't understand why he is injured. Bloody inbred moron.

  • Garth - 2012-02-17 06:26

    What is this thing `Rosselloty'? Why is it still alive? Why is it only being tried now? Useless, worthless anc.

  • Farai Fatso Z - 2012-02-17 07:20

    .... and 2 imagine that in mzansi any advocate 4 the death penalty is ridiculed by every sector of society! What penalty does this scumbag deserve? A 6 year old!!!!!!!!!!!! Bring back the deat penalty Mogoeng Mogoeng!

  • Snoopy.zn - 2012-02-17 07:47

    Kill him man. 6 years, and during the 6 years he has been out on bail to ruin more lives! Why does our justice system allow this? This little girl has been tortured from the initial wrong doing, the past 6 years and for the rest of her life. Does 10/20/25 years really warant punishment for this thing? The victim will have to deal with this ordeal every day, for the rest of her life. She has been ruined, physically and emmotionally. And to see her suffer the way she has! Thats not on. The trial should have started yonks ago, in order for her "Healing" to start. But OUR Human Rights are more important that safety, and protection for our kids, women, and elderly. More Rights for criminals than the victims. And to think she was so helpless!

  • John - 2012-02-17 08:36

    6 years to come to trial.... the wheels of justice have almost ground to a halt.

  • Barry - 2012-02-17 11:44

    Take Mr Rosselloty, put him in a room with a couple of heavies, break both arms and legs, then throw him in prison so he can become the cell block boy, his bum will bleed then.
