UAE: RAK COURT UPHOLDS MAN'S DEATH SENTENCE IN MURDER CASE

July 4, 2015: The RAK (Ras al-Khaima) Court of Cassation has upheld an earlier death sentence passed against a Bengali man found guilty of murdering two compatriots, who were brothers.
As per court records, the case unfolded early in 2013 when the convict had a heated argument with the victims over a loan of Dh300 they owed him, and refused to pay back.
The RAK Court of First Instance convicted the defendant of premeditated murder -  based on the irrefutable evidence collected by the CID teams of RAK Police, and the killer’s confession.
The culprit has admitted to his crime during police investigations and prosecution's interrogation. He later affirmed the same before the RAK Court of First Instance which sentenced him to death.
The murderer told the court that he had killed the brothers because they refused to pay him back a debt of Dh300.
Law enforcement bodies, after being alerted of the massacre, launched an intensive investigation and tracked the killer down. He was apprehended red-handed with the sharp knife used in the crime.
The assailant had stabbed the first victim again, though he was fatally injured, when he tried to defend his sleeping brother from the killer.
The RAK Public Prosecution charged the suspect with premeditated murder, and referred him to the RAK Criminal Court concerned which ordered adjournment of the case seven times due to the absence of the prosecution witness, a fellow worker who was sleeping in the same room where the murder took place.
The case was moved to the RAK Criminal Court of Appeal, which confirmed the death sentence, and finally the RAK Court of Cassation, where the accused was unanimously found guilty and upheld the death ruling. (Sources: khaleejtimes.com, 04/07/2015)
