A VERDICT is set in the case of nine men convicted of brutally attacking an Asian last year and severing his tongue using scissors.
Seven were jailed for 15 years, two for 10 years and one for four years for their role in the brutal attack on Pakistani Irfan Ahmad Baksh Muhammad, who is still receiving treatment at the BDF Hospital almost 17 months later.
Mr Muhammad was earlier declared unfit to give evidence by judges who visited him in hospital.
He suffered severe head injuries when a gang confronted him in March during a campaign of violence waged against the Asian community by anti-government protesters.
The Supreme Criminal Appeals Court adjourned the case until next Tuesday to issue a ruling.
