Judge kisses hand of defendant - his ex-teacher

By Staff

A judge in Jordan stunned the audience when he left his seat, headed straight to the defendant, bowed down and kissed his hand.

The teacher himself was shocked by the act before the judge himself revealed to him that he was his teacher when the judge was a pupil in the primary school.

The teacher was referred to court on charges filed by a Jordanian father that he hit his son in class last week.

“When the judge recognised the defendant, he headed towards, kissed his hand and said to him: This is my sentence on you, my teacher',” a court source said, according to Jordanian newspapers.
