MULLER, J.
et PARKER, J.






Delivered on: 2007 March 26





REVIEW
JUDGMENT:


PARKER,
J:






[1] The accused pleaded guilty to assault with intent to do grievous
bodily harm. He was convicted on his plea of guilty and sentenced.
I have perused the record, and I am satisfied that the proceedings
are in accordance with justice, but the formulation of the sentence
is wrong.





[2]
In the result, the conviction is confirmed and the sentence is set
aside and the following is put in its place:






The accused is sentenced to pay a fine of N$500,00 or to


five
months’ imprisonment, wholly suspended for three


years
on condition that the accused is not convicted of


assault
with the intent to do grievous bodily harm,


committed
during the period of suspension.

PARKER, J.










I agree
