Male ordered to pay monies owed

There was laughter in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court after a man who brought another to court for payment over a phone he accused him of stealing, ended up paying money instead.

The accused, Clive Britton, told the court that he did not steal the complainant's phone. Instead, he said it was handed to him by the complainant as a means of compensation for monies owed.

"He owes me $2,000. I asked him for it and he said he doesn't have it, but the only thing of value he has is his cell phone and he gave it to me."

Britton also told the court, "I don't want his phone, I have it right now," he said, while brandishing the complainant's cellular phone.

Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey ordered the complainant to pay the accused his $2,000, but he refused stating "I only owe him $1,700." He was again ordered to pay the accused $2,000 and his phone was subsequently returned.

No evidence was offered against Britton and he was released.
