The lawyer representing the woman charged with murdering a teacher in an Abu Dhabi mall has challenged the testimonies of the non-Muslim witnesses, arguing that they are ‘invalid’ under Sharia Law.
Abdulqader Al Haithami, who is representing Alaa Al Hashemi, argued that the testimonies of those witnesses who are not Muslim should be disregarded, according to a report in The National newspaper.
“The law states cases of murder according to Sharia law are not proven unless they are pleaded by the council of judges, testimony of two male witnesses, or by the oath. The oath taken by the witnesses is invalid as they are not Muslim,” he said.
Emirati Alaa Bader Abdullah Al Hashemi (30) is on trial at the Federal Supreme Court accused of stabbing Ibolya Ryan (37) to death in a toilet cubicle in Boutik Mall on Reem Island on December 1 last year.

An anonymous source said that the government had revealed to some of its senior civil servants that the attack was known to have come from China, and that th attackers explained that it was due to Bill C-51, the Canadian anti terrorism act being brought into law. (This might lead one to suspect the attack was not motivated by Chinese foreign policy as much as islamic)
