The Banjulinding woman, who caused serious bodily harm to her adopted daughter, will devote 40 hours to community service.
Besides, she was ordered to pay a compensation of D5000 to her victim.
Ramatoulie Jallow was recently convicted by the Brikama Magistrates’ Court for causing series of injuries to her adopted daughter. She added pepper to the injuries and asked her to take bath, adduced sub-Inspector Saine, the prosecution officer.
Ramatoulie admitted cutting the child with a razor blade but denied the allegation of adding pepper to injuries.
“It’s the handiwork of Satan. I don’t think I’m that arrogant to do what I did,” added she.
Ramatoulie’s action was the aftermath of a report given to her by her daughters schoolmates that the child was playing truant from school.
