“From the foregoing, I do hereby find that the prosecution has proved its case on both counts beyond reasonable doubt.
The accused persons are therefore convicted for the offence of attempted murder and gang r3pe contrary to section 220(a) of the Penal Code and section 10 of the S3xual Offences Act respectively,” he said.
