 Two Vietnamese men, both on visit visas, allegedly stabbed to death (together with a runaway suspect) a Pakistani man following a fight over his harassment of prostitutes, the Court of First Instance was told.
The two men, both aged 32, faced a murder charge and the charge of running, together with other suspects at large, a flat as a brothel in International City.
"We were informed about an incident in the Moroccan cluster at 5pm, July 6. When we reached there we found a man's body covered with blood," a police lieutenant said. The victim's friends told the police that they had gone with him to the flat where massage services were offered after they found a business card bearing the Vietnamese accused's number. The police apprehended the two Vietnamese the following day in Oud Al Mutteena.
"One of them said that he was in his flat which was being run as a massage centre when he saw a Pakistani man throwing his shoe at the window. He went downstairs and there were the Pakistani defendants who tried to assault him. He ran up and the other men followed and tried to break-open the flat's door. He called his friend," the lieutenant told the prosecutor.
"The Vietnamese and his friends then went down carrying knives. A fight broke out in which he stabbed one of the Pakistanis in the chest and his friend stabbed another in the leg". The trial has been adjourned to December 8.
