Lansana Fadika breaks down in tears

Sierra Leone News: "The Western Area Regional Chairman of the main opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) last weekend broke down in bitter tears over the ‘Monologue’ radio airwaves as he defended himself to popular radio journalist David Tam-Baryoh.

Fadika, who is SLPP’s constitutional No. 3 man, was speaking of allegations he had received money from President Koroma in order to sabotage the occasion of the delivery of the Maiden Speech of the SLPP’s Presidential Nominee Julius Maada Bio.

Indeed, the much-publicized and highly anticipated huge crowd of SLPP supporters who should have painted the streets of Freetown green and caused traffic jams in the city, just did not materialize last Saturday 3rd September 2011."

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."
