Al Hammadi will get fair trial: Ministry of Interior
The UAE citizen Hassan Mohammed Al Hammadi has been detained on the instructions of the General Directorate of Police in Sharjah and his case has been referred to the public prosecutor in the town of Khor Fakkan, an official source at the UAE Ministry of Interior said on Saturday.
The source said that Al Hammadi has been accused of assaulting the Imam of a mosque in Khor Fakkan, of seizing the microphone from him, and of inciting worshippers at the mosque, the statement said. Such behaviour is considered to violate the norms of behaviour and procedures in mosques, the source added.
Al Hammadi is currently detained in Khor Fakkan Police Headquarters and is being provided with all of his legal rights, including the right to have contacts with his wife, other members of his family and a lawyer, the source said.
Contrary to allegations made on some Internet websites, Al Hammadi may be visited by his family and his lawyer at any time, the source added.
