MARWAKO ‘PEPPER MAN’ JAILED

Published in News Thursday, 03 August 2017 08:09

The Abeka District Court has found Branch manager of Mawarko Fast Food, Jihad Chabaan found guilty of assault and causing harm to a caterer, Evelyn Boakye, at the restaurant.

 

The  judge has therefore  sentenced hthe accused person  to nine months in prison.

Jihad who manages the Abelemkpe branch of the food chain was accused of dipping the face of Evelyn Boakye into a blended pepper.

The incident which happened February 2017, caused a stir on social media and forced the state's attention to the allegation of workplace abuse.

Jihad has been in court since March, over the charges of offensive conduct, assault and causing harm.

His lawyers had at the previous hearing presented terms of an out of court settlement in an attempt to get the court to discharge the accused person.

Magistrate Victoria Ghansah rejected the terms saying an out-of-court settlement is a civil matter which has not been brought before her.

She said the case under her jurisdiction is a criminal matter.

She then proceeded to deliver her judgement on the substantive matter.

Magistrate Ghansah said prosecution had succeeded in proving beyond reasonable doubt that Jihad assaulted the caterer and also caused harm.

He was subsequently sentenced to six months in prison for assault and nine months for causing harm.

Both sentences run concurrently. Jihad's lawyers have signalled, they intend to appeal the judgement.

    Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
