The Brikama Magistrates' Court has ordered a Busumbala man to pay a compensation of D30,000 for battering his wife.
Dembo Cham was previously charged with the offence of attempting to commit murder, but the charge was later changed to assault causing grievous bodily harm.
He had earlier denied the charge but was later found guilty after due trial and could go to jail for 18 months if he fails in his ordered compensation payment.
Dembo was found culpable of beating his wife thereby causing her serious injuries.
