• The identity of the woman who is a public figure cannot be identified after the court ordered the media not to reveal the names of the couple pending the ruling tomorrow.
A woman who was arraigned in court for assaulting her boyfriend has told the court that she is the victim and not the aggressor as alleged.
The identity of the woman who is a public figure cannot be identified after the court ordered the media not to reveal the names of the couple pending the ruling tomorrow.
The police were asking the court to detain the woman for 14 days saying the boyfriend is still unconscious and in critical condition at the high dependency unit.
Court heard that the man sustained a deep cut on his ankle allegedly inflicted by the woman.
The investigating officer told the court she was arrested yesterday at their apartment after the boyfriend’s brother made a report of an assault to the police.
The court heard that during the arrest the police found a lot of blood in the house and broken glasses.
However, through her lawyers, the woman said she is a victim and claimed that the man hurt himself when he was attacking her.
She further asked the court to protect her from the media coverage saying under the Victims Act she is a victim.
His lawyer told the court that until investigations are over no one really knows who the victim is since the intended complainant is still unconscious and he can’t record a statement.
