A woman was recently arraigned before Magistrate Abeke of the Brikama Magisrates' Court, charged with assault causing grievous bodily harm.

Fatoumata Jobe pleaded not guilty to the charge, and was granted bail of D100,000 with two Gambian sureties.

The charge sheet stated that, on 14 March 2011 at Brikama Sanneh Kunda, the accused, Fatoumata Jobe, pored hot water on one Babucarr Gagigo, on his eyes and neck.

The prosecuting officer, 1343 Camara, objected to bail for the accused person on the grounds that the accused is not a Gambian, and also the complainant is at the RVTH and his condition is very critical.

He said if the accused is granted bail he might abscond, but the court granted her bail with the above condition.

The case was adjourned to 29 March 2011.
