Caption: Richard Bal (45) shows disfigured ear of his wife Agita Bal (32) in the Morobe block, Port Moresby. In December of 2010 after coming home drunk, Richard took a bush-knife and cut half of Agita‚Äôs left ear. He spent one night in the police station and was released next morning due to "insufficient evidence" to initiate criminal proceedings. Agita‚Äôs relatives didn‚Äôt allow her to leave Richard, having received 500 kina (about 240 USD) from him for the ‚Äúpotential damage‚ÄĚ.
