Tenant annoys landlord

Atasa Moceituba
Wednesday, February 19, 2014

AN angry tenant admitted to uttering obscene words at his landlord last year.

Vimal Singh told the court he was guilty of the offence as the magistrate was getting ready to make arrest orders against the witnesses.

Mr Singh was charged with annoying any person.

The police prosecution informed the court that summons for the two witnesses, including one who was a police constable, had been served last October.

The court was told the witnesses had failed to appear and the prosecution made an application for a bench warrant for the witnesses. Mr Singh told the court there was no need to arrest the two men because he committed the crime.

The court asked him if he was doing on his own will. He responded in the affirmative.

The court heard the incident occurred when the landlord told Mr Singh, who was partying with two women at his flat in Samabula, that partying was not allowed.

In mitigation, Mr Singh said he was 41 years old and self-employed earning around $60 a day.

He told the court he was paying rent for the flat and felt his landlord had ridiculed him in front of his guests.

Mr Singh will be sentenced next Tuesday.
