WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Oct. 11) – The two daily newspapers in Tahiti report that an investigation has been opened into the alleged rape of a young woman by the consular representative of the United States in French Polynesia.

The reports say Christopher Kozely has been questioned after a 17-year-old woman lodged the complaint a few days ago.

Mr Kozely was briefly held but is free pending further investigation.

He has been the U.S. consular agent for two years and runs a business in Tahiti.

His status does not give him diplomatic immunity.
