Panacea boss to face serious assault charge

Panacea boss to face serious assault charge

Joe Akka, gaffer of Panacea, has spent what will have been an uncomfortable weekend in the nick, but not as uncomfortable as the victim no doubt.

Joe is charged with intent to do grievous bodily harm. A 54 year old man was taken to hospital with serious head injuries. His condition is said to be critical.

The incident happened at 3am on Sunday morning, and Joe was charged this morning, Monday 7th August.

Manchester Confidential’s food and booze critic Gordo writes:

“I saw Joe briefly on Saturday night; it sounds very unlike him. Joe went to Stockport Grammar with my daughter, Georgina. Although we like to take the mickey out of him every now and again, he is a very professional operator with a door team that won the ManchesterConfidential.com Door Team of the Year Award last year. It sounds to me that there may well be more to this than meets the eye.”

The 54 year old man is in a stable but critical condition in hospital. If anyone has any more information regarding this incident, please email, in total confidence, gordo@manchesterconfidential.com.

We should have more information in tomorrow’s Restaurant News.
