Driver crushes man to death…

An Emirati employer who crushed his worker to death with his car told an Abu Dhabi criminal court he was only joking with him, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The unnamed employer was charged with murder but he insisted he only wanted to frighten his worker as he walked to his friend’s house after finishing work.

“He told the court that he wanted to joke with his worker and frighten him but the worker did not get out of the way,” the semi-official daily 'Al Ittihad' said.

It said the judge adjourned hearings to November 4 to allow the defence lawyer to prepare his statement and for the victim’s relatives to attend trial.
