Court of the United Arab Emirates has sentenced 22-year-old electrician, a citizen of Pakistan. Man sentenced to five years in prison for the murder of his colleague. After serving his term he will be deported.
The murder was committed in the summer of 2016 during the midday rest. Men slept in the conditioned room and the young man did not like that a colleague constantly sticks his feet under his nose – especially because they went from an unpleasant smell.
According to the materials of the case, the dispute quickly turned into a fight. Other workers managed to separate the participants, but the defendant went to the warehouse, took a knife and attacked a colleague. The attack was captured by surveillance cameras.
The victim was taken to the hospital in a coma and with great loss of blood. A few days doctors were fighting for his life, but on 31 July he died.
During the investigation, the defendant said repeatedly politely asked to move his feet, but in response received only insults. According to him, the victim attacked him first. The court, however, rejected this version.
