Chinese who slit neck of his worker over heated confrontation was denied bail.
Manager of Poly Changda Engineering Company, Xue Hui, was denied bail by the Sekondi District Court presided over by Her Worship Nana Abena Asoh Owusu Omenyo after he was accused of attempting to murder his employee with a flip knife.
The presiding judge asserts that only the trial court has the power to issue bail to the accused.
The complainant, Isaac Boateng, is a concrete mixer and an employee of the same company, according to Chief Prosecutor Superintendent Steve Addom, who presented the facts of the case to the court. The accused is a Chinese national and manager of Poly Changda Engineering Company, which is based in Takoradi.
On Tuesday, September 27, he described how the complainant arrived at work at 7:00 am and left at 3 pm rather than 5:00 pm. The accused contacted the complainant the following day during his lunch break to explain why he had closed without permission earlier than normal.
Following a verbal confrontation over this, the accused informed the complainant that he had been fired.
According to reports, the complainant grew irate, packed his work clothing, and went to the accused individual to pay him off.
They got into a heated quarrel. The accused left his workplace without warning brandishing a flip knife, which he then used to slice the complainant’s neck.
In an interview with Connect FM, the accused’s attorney, Akpene Darko Cobbinah, said that his client has so far displayed considerable remorse and that it was not his aim to harm his employee.
