Couac: – A man charged after the murder of his wife and her 13 months old daughter in Belgium should be released before his trial. Due to an error of justice, his detention is illegal.
This is a miscarriage of justice that could be costly . On Wednesday, the Belgian Court of Cassation gave judgment in which it confirmed that a man detained after the murder of his wife and his daughter, was to be released , as reported by the website DH.be. The Court indicated that the criminal was illegally imprisoned since March 11 , because of a procedural error by the Council Chambers of Nivelles.
The latter had indeed forgotten to order the immediate enforcement of the arrest warrant , and in so doing had rendered it illegal. The Belgian Daily reports that, to repair this ” forgetfulness”, a new arrest warrant against the accused will have to be issued and will have to be sent back to the Criminal Court, but this cannot be done before the 26 May.
After the drama, he had fled
By that time, he should be free, which makes the procedure risky because the man accused of beheading his wife and little girl of 13 months, in December 2013, could flee abroad. Of Syrian origin, Abdullah Saad has a residence permit valid until next year, according to his lawyers, but he does not have a domicile in Belgium.
Aged 34, the man has never denied the murders. Suspecting his wife of infidelity and thinking that his daughter was not his biological child, he had slaughtered them with a cutlass. When the bodies of Nura Horiya, his wife and Samira her daughter, were discovered, their heads “held by no more than a few shreds of skin” explains the Belgian daily. After the tragedy, the father had fled by car towards Namur and caused an accident involving three other cars. Hospitalized for a broken arm, he was arrested by the police.
