A MAN who was shot three times for wearing a T-shirt with the image of US President Barack Obama says he is pleased that the assailant pleaded guilty to the crime.
Dube Egwuatu says he is “relieved” that his almost two-year quest for justice is finally over after gunman Peter Mahoney pleaded guilty to racially aggravated wounding and possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
“I feel relieved that something that could have been a tragic situation has been handled by the justice system,” he said. Egwuatu was buying a mobile phone top-up card at his local off license in Norwood, south east London in October 2008, when the gunman Mahoney confronted him about his shirt.
