Demonstration to prove illness

A MAN told the Suva Magistrates Court he was not able to swing a caneknife at his nephew because he has Parkinson's disease.

Mohammed Shaif Shah appeared before magistrate Sufia Hamza yesterday for alleged criminal intimidation and annoying a person.

It is alleged that on November 4, 2012, the accused swung a caneknife at his nephew and his brother, which did not hit them.

The court heard that he also swore at his family.

The hearing was conducted yesterday where both the accused and the victim testified in court.

Mr Shah told the court his nephew was lying because he was unable to lift a knife.

He was told to demonstrate the alleged act before magistrate Hamza during which the court noticed he suffered from the disease and was unable to lift the caneknife.

Mr Shah's wife was also in court to confirm he suffered from the disease.

The matter has been adjourned to April 29.
