The Bunding Magistrates’ Court recently discharged and acquitted one Peggy Sillah, on the grounds that the prosecution had woefully failed to prove a charge of theft against her.
In his judgment, Magistrate Fredrick Forster stated that the accused was charged with the offence of theft, which she denied, adding that the prosecution called three witnesses in support of their case.
He stated that the accused also testify, and called one witness in support of her defence.
He said after evaluating the evidence of the prosecution and the defence, the court found that the prosecution had woefully failed to prove their case beyond reasonable doubt.
He consequently discharged and acquitted her.
