Court Acquitted 2 Workers Of A Gas Testing Company For A Fire Incident
The Misdemeanor Court of First Instance acquitted two workers of a gas testing company who were held responsible for a fire incident in a restaurant on the day of its inauguration which injured two other workers. The Public Prosecution accused the defendants of causing injuries to their colleagues unintentionally and of carelessness due to failure in taking necessary steps of precautions which could have prevented gas leakage in the restaurant. However, the defense counsel Lawyer Mohammad Khalil Al-Qattan insisted that his clients were innocent of the allegations, indicating that the prosecutors could not support the allegations with any concrete proof. He explained that there was no evidence that the company where his clients were working was in charge of connecting the pipe that had exploded.
