Criminal Court Acquitted An Individual Who Was Accused In Rape Case
The Criminal Court acquitted an individual who was accused of raping, threatening and incapacitating the plaintiff. The defense counsel Lawyer Mohammad Khaleel Al-Qattan explained that the Public Prosecution, during the trial, failed to convince the court about the actual incident, as the only testimony that the prosecution based its case on was the victim’s statement. He stressed that his client did not have any weapon to threaten and subdue the victim. Lawyer Al-Qattan revealed that the procedures taken to arrest his client were not based on an arrest warrant issued by the Public Prosecution, due to which the entire case can be deemed as invalid.
