The Kanifing Magistrates' Court had deferred the sentencing of one Kissima Conteh who was recently convicted on a charge of assault, causing actual bodily harm.
In his judgment, the presiding magistrate stated that the prosecution has proven their case on count one but failed to tender any evidence on count two.
He adduced that the prosecution had called three witnesses, all of whom, gave evidence in respect of assault causing actual bodily harm.
He went on to relate the evidence as adduced by the prosecution witnesses and that of the accused.
According to the presiding magistrate, the prosecution witnesses have proven the charge of assault causing actual bodily harm but failed to prove a charge of threatening to kill.
Consequently, he found the accused guilty on a charge of assault causing actual bodily harm but discharged him on a charge of threatening to kill.
Magistrate B.O Jobe adjourned the case to 15th January 2010 for sentencing on the convicted count.
