Man demands death of brother for murder

By Staff

A man demanded the execution of his brother and his brother's wife in court in Abu Dhabi, on charges of murdering his second wife, insisting that he would not pardon them.

The court asked the man to make a statement on the grounds he is the legal custodian of the victim’s two children, who are too young to decide whether to accept diya (blood money) for the death of their mother.

The defendant had confessed to locking up the second wife and using a stick to beat her up for nearly eight years on the grounds she was disobeying him.

“The brother rejected blood money and insisted on the death penalty for his brother and his brother's wife for complicity in the murder,” 'Al Bayan' daily said.
