A sad day in the village of Bullock

Daily Observer: "For the family of late Isatou Jallow, a 23-year old nursing mother at Foni Bullock, this year will forever remain unforgettable.

This is especially so for Fatoumatta Ceesay, a six-month old baby who lay beside and watched over her mother’s corpse till day break. In the evening of that faithful day, Isatou Jallow bade the world goodbye to meet her untimely death at the hands of her assailants. Four suspects in the names of Agibu Jallow (main suspect), Momodou Jang Bah, Bubacarr Bah and Alfusainey Jallow (suspected accomplices) were linked to the murder of this young lady. They have since been arrested and have appeared before the Brikama Magistrates Court."

Court frees boy prisoner

The Namibian Newspaper: "THE High Court yesterday ordered the immediate release of a 12-year-old boy who became Namibia's youngest sentenced prison inmate after receiving a six-month jail term for housebreaking and theft at Karasburg in October.

In a review judgement handed down by Judge Elton Hoff, Acting Judge Claus Hinrichsen set aside the boy's conviction and sentence and ordered his immediate release from detention.

Judge Hoff agreed with Acting Judge Hinrichsen's decision, which was based on the principle that a child as young as the boy is presumed not to be criminally liable, especially where he had been involved in a crime while under the influence and instructions of a much older person.
The boy was sentenced to six months' imprisonment on October 19, after he had been convicted in the Karasburg Magistrate's Court on a charge of housebreaking with intent to steal and theft."
