Five Boys to Go to Juvenile Court

Wednesday, November 7, 2007

Three of the five boys from Tallinding, who were earlier last month arraigned at the Bundung Magistrates’ Court for assault and battery, would now have their case heard by a juvenile court.

The boys were charged with the offence of assaulting one Lamin Sanneh by beating him all over his body and, as a result, caused him actual bodily harm.

It would be recalled that the three boys, in their maiden court appearance, denied the charges but were later found guilty as their case proceeded into a full trial.

In his judgement, magistrate Jawo ordered the three boys to be taken to the children’s court for their trial.
