Tema, March 23, GNA - A trader who used a rake to cause lacerations on the body of another woman during a quarrel has been granted 20 million cedis bail by the Tema Circuit Court "A".
Georgina Afia Agbesi pleaded not guilty on a charge of causing harm and will reappear on April 14, 2004.
Prosecuting, Police Chief Inspector Mary Assunta told the court, presided over by Mr Charles Asiedu that on March 5, 2004, about 4:30 p.m., Ms Justina Sunka who stays with the accused in the same neighbourhood at Lebanon, Ashaiman and are not in good talking terms, was conversing with a co-tenant near a charcoal shed by the road side when all of a sudden Georgina appeared on the scene.
She said Georgina furiously confronted Justina of gossiping about her, which resulted in exchange of words and Justina's daughter Rebecca Amemudzi advised the mother to stop quarrelling, then approached the accused and talked politely to her to stop the quarrel.
However, Georgina's son Maxwell Amuzu, who was at the scene became angry with Rebecca and therefore attacked and assaulted her. Justina rushed to them and in the process of separating them, Georgina on the other hand also rushed to her house, pulled a rake; returned to the scene and inflicted wounds on the face of Justina.
Chief Inspector Assunta said Justina sustained lacerations on the body, and she went to the Ashaiman North Police Station with blood all over the body and she was issued with a police medical form and to go for treatment at the Tema General Hospital.
