The son of Fijian Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama has been charged with a string of domestic violence offences in Australia.

36-year-old Ratu Meli Bainimarama is facing 17 charges, including stalking, assault, and choking.

He is also accused of damaging property and distributing an intimate image without consent.

Mr Bainimarama has not entered a plea but will “rely on his good character” in any defence, his lawyer said.

The offences allegedly took place in Sydney between February and May, but Mr Bainimarama was arrested last week after a police report was made earlier this month.
