Evelyn Boakye,kitchen staffer at Marwako whose face was allegedly dipped in pepper

Marwako victim was traumatised; eyes inflamed – Doctor
The medical doctor at the Achimota Hospital,
Matilda Madiwa Adda who examined the victim of the
alleged pepper attack by the branch manager of
Marwako restaurant, said the lady reported at her
facility traumatised.

Dr. Matilda Adda was in court on Wednesday to
testify on the report she issued after examining
Evelyn Boakye.

She told the court that the victim suffered from
an inflammation on the white part of her eyes when
she was examined. Her eyes were dried, the doctor
said, and therefore advised the victim to wear
sunglasses until her condition normalizes.

During cross-examination by the lead counsel for
the accused, Julio de Medeiros, Dr. Adda confirmed
that the condition suffered by the victim could be
caused by pepper but it is not only limited to
it.

She added that the eye infection suffered by the
victim could not have been caused by a mere
rubbing of the eye. An external element would have
to make contact with eye before one can suffer
such an inflammation, she emphasised.

Meanwhile, lawyers of the accused Jihad Chabaan
after the cross examination indicated that they
will file a submission of no case. The case has
been adjourned to 26th of April 2017 for the
defence lawyers to make an oral submission of
their submission of no case application.

Jihad Chabaan is alleged to have dipped the face
of Evelyn Boakye, a caterer at the restaurant,
into a blended pepper and locked her up for hours.
He had pleaded not guilty to three counts of
assault, offensive conduct and causing harm.
