An Olympic boxer has been accused of sexually
assaulting a housekeeper, the second boxer to
face such charges at the Games.

Namibian Jonas Junius competes in the light-
middleweight division and was the flag bearer for
his country at the opening ceremony.
The 22-year-old was due to fight French boxer
Hassan Amzile on Thursday.
Namibia’s embassy and Olympic officials are yet to
comment.

His arrest comes just a few days after Moroccan
boxer Hassan Saada was arrested by Brazilian
police
on suspicion of raping two female workers at the
Olympic Village.
Under Brazilian law, suspects can be held for a
lengthy period while a case is investigated.
Saada was expected to remain in jail for 15 days
while police examined the women’s claims.
