OUR HISTORY- DIAGNOSIS FROM THE BENCH

The witness, a teenage girl was giving evidence about an alleged assault and presented a medical certificate from Doctor A. As it happened a JP hearing the case was also a doctor and called the young woman forward for closer visual examination of the injured face, puffy and swollen. The second medical opinion resulted in the prisoner’s discharge. “There’s no sign of injury – I diagnose mumps!”
