Matarr Sowe, a resident of Yundum Village, recently opened his defence in an assault charge preferred against him at the Brikama Magistrates’ Court.

In his defence, Sowe told the court that on a certain day in 2010, he went out with his father to their herd where and when they met with some men.

He added that one of the men confronted his father asking him whether the father was the owner of the compound they came from and his father told the man that he was indeed the owner of the compound.

When his father said this to the man, he said the man then told his father to go with them to the compound as he wanted to see the compound documents.

Hearing continues on 17 October 2011.
