Man assaults former brother-in-law, flees

By Eman Al Baik

An Iranian fugitive, allegedly with a compatriot, assaulted his former brother-in-law and caused him 5 per cent permanent disability, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

On April 4, 2014, RA, fugitive, and his jobless compatriot KL, 45, assaulted his sister’s ex-husband HH, 38, businessman.

“The two assaulted me in a parking lot in Dubai Marina,” HH told the police.

The victim sustained fractures on the skull and the back and chest bones.

Records did not mention the cause behind the assault.

RA fled the country after the assault while his friend KL was arrested and referred to the court.

The court will give sentence on April 12.
