The accused, Retired Director of Lands and Surveys, Mr. Fayia Alpha was yesterday found guilty on one count of economic and domestic abuse filed against him by his legally wedded wife, Mrs. Dessie Rachael Alpha (nee Sheriff).

The complainant Mrs. Alpha was later reported by her husband for public insult and provocation.
In summary of Mrs. Dassie Rachael Alpha as an accused in the other filed, Magistrate Moody said that the accused (Dassie) was after court hearing on the previous matter filed in by her (Mrs. Alpha) as complainant against her husband, failed to control her temper and thereby attacked the accused Mr. Fayia Alpha with abusive language and provocation.
