[www.inewsguyana.com] – A 27-year-old labourer of Adventure Linden, Highway was today placed on $25,000 bail for assaulting his common law wife.
Leon Budhram pleaded not guilty to the charge, which alleged that on October 26 at Linden Highway, he unlawfully assaulted Wendella France.
Police Prosecutor Michael Grant opposed bail on the grounds that the defendant may tamper with the witness if granted bail.
Budhram told the Court that he and his reputed wife have been together for over a year and on the day in question they had a misunderstanding.
Grant’s objection was overruled since the defendant gave the court an alternative address where he will reside until the completion of the matter.
The matter was transferred to the Linden Magistrate’s Court for November 4.
