Wife begs court to pardon husband over assault charge

A woman married for more than 10 years begged Magistrate Sunil Scarce to drop the case against her husband who was charged for unlawful assault.
Haimwattie Singh from Onderneeming Village, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) told Magistrate Scarce that she loves her husband and she wants to give him another chance.
They both appeared on Thursday at the Suddie Magistrate’s Court. According to a police report, Kumar Singh on March 16, 2016 at Onderneeming Village, Essequibo Coast, unlawfully assaulted his wife Haimwattie Singh.
He pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The wife told the court that out of anger she reported the matter but she does not wish to proceed with the case.
Magistrate Scarce asked her if she was sure and reminded her it was not the first time she was reporting against her husband. In reply she said she was sure about dropping the case even as on many occasions she put him out the house.
After listening to both parties Scarce dismissed the matter.
