Micah Goodin Concedes Assault Case to Kareem Adley

Kareem Adley Sr.

A charge of common assault was struck out against Kareem Adley Senior today by Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser.  It goes back to November fifth 2016, when the P.U.P. held an election for a new Belize Youth Movement president.  Adley Junior vied for the post and lost.  But things went wrong and the senior Kareem Adley was accused of physically assaulting activist, Micah Goodin who is now a reporter with the Amandala newspaper. Goodin alleged that Adley Senior pushed and choked him then pinned him against the wall. He was subsequently charged for common assault, pleaded not guilty and was offered bail of six hundred dollars. The case was set for trial today but it crumbled when Goodin did not turn up. The Prosecutor also informed the court that the original files had not been received while Attorney Michel Chebat told the court that all he has is an unsigned witness statement. The Senior Magistrate then struck out the matter against Adley Senior and he was free of the charge of common assault.
