Three-year old girl in ‘Victoria’ case gives evidence

A three-year-old girl who it is alleged was raped at her nursery in Myanmar has given evidence via video link at a trial in the capital, Nay Pyi Taw, the BBC reported.

The case of the toddler, who by law cannot be named, has caused outrage in the country. Campaigners have given her the name "Victoria".

Police say the attack took place on 16 May. A school employee is under arrest and charged with raping her.

But DNA evidence has been inconclusive and nursery staff dispute it was him.

He has yet to give evidence in court or enter a plea, the lawyer defending him told the BBC Burmese service.
