(MENAFN - Arab Times) Lawyer Bashar Al-Nassar, counsel of the man suspected to have stabbed Mohammad Al-Falah, son of the Undersecretary at Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Dr Adel Al-Falah, denied the allegation against his client says Al-Seyassah.
He argued that the story linking his client to the crime is inaccurate, and explained one of the pedestrians who exchanged blows with the victim must have stabbed him in the process.
He indicated his client made himself available to the police after he was declared wanted, and claimed the victim was impolite in the manner he addressed his client when he ordered the latter to take his motorbike out of the pedestrian track at the Marina Beach.
His client had asked whether Al-Falah was a police officer but the victim replied that the track did not belong to the father of his client. As a result, his client became incensed for insulting his late father and alighted from the bike, but the victim initiated the physical attack with a stick and his client sustained a fracture in the hand and fell on the ground. He stated that passersby intervened at that point after the victim attacked him physically, then he saw the victim on the ground and stained with blood, but he did not know how he got injured, so he picked his motorbike and left the scene.
