A court in France has found famous Congolese music star, Koffi Olomide, guilty of raping a 15-year-old girl.

The music star was handed two years suspended jail sentence by a court in France in absentia.

According to reports, the suspended sentence means that Koffi Olomide faces an arrest if he commits further offences.

Koffi Olomide was ordered by the court to pay a fine of 5,000 euros (2million Naira) in damages to the former dancer.

He was also ordered to pay the same amount to the court for illegally bringing three women into France.

Olomidé's lawyer has hailed the ruling as a victory, telling journalists it would result in the withdrawal of the star's international arrest warrant.

Koffi Olomide was accused of raping a young lady between 2002 and 2006.
