He asked higher authorities to form a committee to review the verdict and the entire case.

'i plead my innocence and swear to god that neither my religion nor my education knowledge age fatherhood or upbringing allow me to even think of committing such an act which can only come from ribald and mentally ill people" he said in his video.

'i strongly deny all that i am accused of" he said. 'it is all unjust fabrication of the truth. the accusations i am being subjected to are not acceptable in our religion. they are malicious and have been magnified and manipulated.

The saudi supreme court in riyadh has ratified the verdict of murder discretionary for mousa al-zahrani previously issued in jeddah's general court but the defendant maintains he is innocent and has been trying to sway public opinion over the past two days through his video which aired on social media platforms.

'i am 100 percent convinced he is innocent" he said. 'i would not have taken up his case had i not been convinced of his innocence." 'i have my reasons for believing he did not commit these crimes which i have jotted down in regulation interceptors but the court has a different take on the case" he said

'i am no longer his lawyer and i have no interest in claiming his innocence which goes to show that this is my genuine view" he said

The 44-year-old suspect a teacher is married with six children and lives with his family and his father in one house. 'i enjoyed a very good social life and track record prior to this incident" he said. 'i have never broken a single law; i have never even run a red light.
