[www.inewsguyana.com] – A man who has served prison time for the offense of assault causing grievous bodily harm on his wife, was once again placed before the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court to answer to a similar offense on Friday, November 13.

The court heard that 41 – year – old Mark Singh of Bourda, Georgetown on November 7, 2015 at Bourda, unlawfully and maliciously assaulted Sujata Persaud, his reputed wife.

The Prosecution informed the court that about 23:00 hrs on the day in question, the accused went home after a drinking spree and started to physically assault his wife, causing her serious injuries.

The court heard that Singh has already served two consecutive sentences of 6 months each for similar offenses committed on Persaud.

The woman, who was present in court, explained that she is fearful for her life, pointing out that she has begged the accused to leave her alone.

Persaud, who was visibly in pain, says she is unable to move the right side of her body properly without suffering striking pain and constant fever.

In light of Persaud’s evidence, Magistrate Annette Singh sentenced the man to 12 months imprisonment.
