A 55 year old man in Samoa has been jailed for 20 years after he admitted to five counts of raping his 14 year old daughter between 2009 and last year.

The police told the court that the complainant was forced by the defendant to have sex while the girl's mother was away playing bingo.

The court also heard the complainant was threatened by her father at the time of the offences.
