Bush Knife attack

12 years for bush knife attack on man

Compensation on the other hand, defeats the purpose of criminal law.

This message was echoed by the National Court on Friday by Justice Panuel Mogish when giving his penalty sentence to a 25 year old man who viciously attacked another man using a bush knife.

Ageru Lea, from the Abau District, was sentenced to 12 years in prison after he was found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm to Willie Sioro that left him with permanent injuries.

Lea attacked Sioro on March 3, 2015, cutting him twice on his left forearm and his right foot.
