Do you remember the woman, who decided to set up a chop bar at the pokuase interchange? She and her husband were sent to court, and the verdict, was a GH4000.00 cedis fine.
Since the time the verdict was given, ghanaians rose to their feet with anger that, the fine was too small.
This got the attention of lawmakers and practitioners, and on adom kasea yesterday, they happened to talk to one law practitioner, to ask about his thoughts about the fine the court gave to the guilty party.
His response was, in the court of law, verdict are given based on the intensity of the offense, and that, the womans idea of doing a business is a good one, but with the exception of the idea of establishing it at the interchange. Also she was a first time offender thus, the small amount of fine.
Hence, he entreated Ghanaians that, the verdict was a good one based on the degree of the offense.
