Accra, Aug. 02, GNA – Jihad Chaaban, the
jailed supervisor of the Abelenkpe Branch of the Marwako Restaurant, has
instructed his lawyers to file for an appeal against his nine-month sentence by
the Abeka District Court.

The Counsel for the convict, Julio De
Medeiros, said his client disagreed with the judgement and he was going to immediately
start working on the appeal process.

The Court found Chaaban guilty of unlawfully
causing harm and assault; but found him not guilty of offensive conduct
conducive to breach of the peace.  It
thus gave him six months imprisonment for assault and nine months for causing
harm. Both sentences are, however, to run concurrently.

 
Chaaban, on February 28, this year, angrily grabbed the neck of Ms
Evelyn Boakye, a worker,  and dipped her
face into a full jar of blended pepper after he had  accused her of fidgeting with the blender and
working slowly. 

He was, subsequently, charged with
intentionally and unlawfully causing harm and assault as well as offensive
conduct for calling the victim a prostitute.

The Court, presided over by Mrs Victoria
Ghansah, said the Prosecution had been able to prove beyond every reasonable
doubt that the accused committed the offence.

But Julio De Medeiros said: “We entirely
disagree with the findings of the Court, because we thought that we put up a
very good defence.”

Chaaban had pleaded not guilty to the charges.
