Jihad Chaaban, the Marwako restaurant supervisor, standing trial for allegedly dipping the face of a female worker into pepper, will know his fate on July 26, 2017.
The Abeka District Court, presided by Ms Victoria Akua Ghansah, will give its judgement in trial in which Chaaban is facing three counts of causing harm, assault and offensive conduct for the alleged attack on the female worker, Evelyn Boakye.
On February 26, 2017, the prosecution said Evelyn, who works in the rice department, was instructed to assist in the vegetable department by blending fresh pepper.
As she was performing the task, Chaaban entered the room with rage and shouted at Evelyn, demanding to know who gave her the authority to use the blender.
“Chaaban became offended, started insulting Evelyn and called her a prostitute. Not satisfied, he held her head and forced it into the blended pepper, which splashed into her face and eyes,” it said.
Evelyn, he said, became helpless and was assisted by some other workers of the restaurant to go home.
The prosecutoion said on February 28, the condition of Evelyn deteriorated and she reported the matter to the Tesano Police Command.
