Community worker is cleared of machete attack on Rastafarian
The Guardian (London) April 9, 1988 LENGTH: 255 words
A jury yesterday cleared a community worker on charges of attacking Rastafarian Mr Kuomba Balogun with a machete.
Earlier, Mr Balogun, aged 26, was fined Pounds 150 by the judge at Bristol crown court for turning up late on the second day of the trial.
Mr Justice Smithies told his counsel, Mr Ian Glenn: 'A fine would be a proper way of expressing public disapproval.'
The judge also ordered Mr Balogun to pay Pounds 100 towards his defence costs but Mr Glenn said that he did not intend to claim them.
The jury found Mr Valentine Walker, aged 36, of Robertson Road, Easton, Bristol, not guilty of unlawfully wounding Mr Balogun with intent. An alternative charge of unlawful wounding was also dismissed.
The prosecution claimed that Mr Walker, former vice-chairman of the St Paul's Community Association, of which Mr Balogun is chairman had struck a 2ft 6in machete into Mr Bologun's neck. Mr Mark Horton, prosecuting, said the blow came within one centimetre of severing his juglar vein.
The court was told that Mr Balogun did not initially report the incident to the police and discharged himself from Bristol Royal Infirmary after treatment.
In his address to the jury, Mr Nicholas O'Brien, the defence counsel said: 'Mr Balogun is an evil man who does not share society's standards or values.'
Mr Walker did not appear during the two-day hearing and the judge said that an arrest warrant still stood but was now with bail so that he would not have to be immediately arrested when found.
