Two Court Staff Rewarded for Overpowering Assailant

Shaikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs, who is also Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, honoured Mohammed Ahmed Al Mazroui and Nazeer Mohammed Saad for the courage and quick action they showed to subdue martial arts expert B.A.H.M., who attacked L.K. during a court hearing and stabbed him several times after chasing him out of the court room, according to Judicial Department Undersecretary Sultan Saeed Al Badi.

The two had appeared in the Dhafra court on Tuesday in connection with an assault case in which the Arab had pleaded not guilty to the charges of causing vision impairment in one of the eyes of the Nepalese. He claimed that he had attacked him in self defence. The Nepalese, however, insisted on pursuing the charges and claiming damages.

Strangely, investigations into Tuesday’s murder in the court complex revealed that the same Arab suspect had allegedly killed yet another man soon before he was due to attend a court hearing. He later confessed to committing both murders.
