A Bakoteh lady was last week fined D1000 for assaulting a friend.

Fatou Jah could also go to jail for 12 months if she defaults in paying a compensation of D2000 to her victim.

She was earlier charged at the Bundung Magistrates' Court for slapping her friend but had denied the charge.

However, after a marathon trial, the prosecution led by Inspector L. Touray, proved the ingredients of its case beyond reasonable doubt and Fatou was, therefore, convicted and sentenced 'accordingly'.

The case was presided over by magistrate B.O. Jobe.
