Poole rape defendant says sex in court was consensual

A MAN told jurors he had not raped a woman and that their sex was consensual.

Hasan Kyoybasha is on trial at Bournemouth Crown Court charged with rape and penetrative sexual assault of a woman in September last year.

Kyoybasha, 30, of Ashley Road, Poole, denies both charges.

As noted, prosecutors allege the accused followed the complainant in the early hours of Sunday, September 5, 2021, before committing the sexual assault in an outdoor area near Poole Road, Branksome.

Testifying in court on March 11, Kyoybasha said he had sex with the woman, in her 30s, but he said she told him she wanted to have sex with him.

Prosecutor Tom Horder asked if the defendant dragged the complainant to the ground or if she collapsed and fell.

Kyoybasha, speaking through a translator, replied, “She lay on the floor and then we had sex.”

The defendant denied grabbing the woman’s face as she lay on the ground and told the court that she had removed her panties herself.

He said he wasn’t looking around when it was suggested he was afraid of getting caught.

Telling him that the woman did not want to have sex with him, the accused replied: “She did.”

Kyoybasha added that “as far as I know she wanted to have sex.”

Mr. Horder suggested to the defendant that the complainant had tried to get away from him several times that night, he replied: “She had no intention of leaving. She just had these particular moves.

The defendant told the court that he left the woman to “her own devices”, but there were times when they came back together.

The complainant told police she remembered telling Kyoybasha to leave her alone, that he was not her type and that she had no interest in him.

Kyoybasha told the jury that the woman said none of these things. When asked what he talked to the woman about while they were nearby, about an hour and 45 minutes, he said they exchanged small talk.

The accused denies both counts.

The trial continues.
