Two men allegedly punched each other outside the State Courts building at Havelock square. They were former business partners and had attended a hearing at the State Courts due to a business dispute. After the hearing, the men began to argue as they left the building which led them to exchanging blows outside the State Courts.
It took about 10 Security personnel and police officers almost 10 minutes to calm the pair down and send them on their way
One of the men was defended by our team of criminal lawyers, who were successful in receiving a reduced sentence for our client. The accused was charged with a fine of $1,000. He could have been jailed for up to a year and fined $5,000.
