Brufut resident Alhagie Manneh was yesterday convicted and sentenced to a fine of D14,000, in default to serve six months in prison with hard labour, by the Bundung Magistrates’ Court.

Delivering his judgement, Principal Magistrate Fredick Foster stated that the convict was charged with threatening violence and common assault, which he denied.

He explained that the prosecution in support of their case had called in two witnesses whose evidences were not disputed by the convict.

He added that the evidence of the prosecution witnesses was very crystal clear and without ambiguity, saying the evidence of the two prosecution witnesses remained uncontroverted.     

He said as a result, the prosecution had discharged the burden to prove their case beyond reasonable doubts, and consequently found the convict guilty of the offence charged.
