Evelyn Boakye, the kitchen staff of Marwako Fast Foods Limited whose face was allegedly dipped into a paste of blended pepper by her supervisor, Jihad Chaaban, has opted for an out-of-court settlement.
The Abeka District Court has therefore adjourned the delivery of its judgment in the assault case to Wednesday, August 2, 2017.
The Magistrate Victoria Ghansah said she got notice of the out-of-court settlement on Monday, July 24 and so would want to settle the details before delivering her judgment.
Magistrate Ghansah adjourned hearing to August 2, to decide whether the court will grant the request.
Jihad Chaaban, a Supervisor at the Marwako Restaurant, on February 28, this year, allegedly grabbed the neck of Evelyn Boakye angrily and dipped her face into a full jar of blended pepper.
He reportedly accused her of fidgeting with the blender and working slowly.
Ms Boakye was an employee at the Abelenkpe Branch of Marwako Restaurant.
Chaaban has been charged with offensive conduct by calling the victim a prostitute and intentionally and unlawfully causing harm and assault.
Chaaban has, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
