Abu Dhabi — The verdict in the Reem Island murder case — dubbed the Reem Island Ghost case — will be pronounced on June 29. The defendant in the case, a 38-year-old Emirati woman, is accused of stabbing an American teacher to death in a popular Abu Dhabi mall and planting a home-made bomb at the door of an Egyptian-American doctor in December last year.

On Monday, the Federal Supreme Court, presided by Falah Al Hajiri, heard the defence plea which lasted more than hour. The defence lawyer called for “maximum level of leniency and mercy” before deciding on the case.
