In our report, “Man torn between lovers, ends up on assault charge,” published in the Saturday, January 19, 2013 edition, it was erroneously stated that Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry “ordered a female officer, who was seated in the courtroom, to take the child outside until after the matter had been heard whereupon he was handed back to his father.” The magistrate did not make such an order; rather, she asked the female officer to assist the defendant and unknown to her, the rank exited the courtroom with the child. Stabroek News regrets the error.
