Stabbing case dropped after reconciliation

Dubai: A court has dropped the charge of attempted murder against an Egyptian glass technician after he reconciled with the victim.

The 27-year-old AM, told the Dubai Court of First Instance he did not have any intention of trying to kill 37-year-old MA.

Prosecutors accused AM of attempting to murder MA by repeatedly stabbing him in his neck, chest and face because the latter had reportedly called him a homosexual in front of his workmates.

"The court has dropped the attempted murder charge against AM after the two parties reconciled. The court will confiscate the knife which was used during the attack," said Presiding Judge Fahmi Mounir Fahmi yesterday in courtroom four.

Alone in the flat

According to the charge sheet, AM used a rope and a knife when attempting to kill the man, also from Egypt. The two men were alone in the flat when the incident happened. Prosecutors said AM tied MA's hands and left him in the bedroom. After that, AM grabbed a knife and stabbed MA repeatedly and cried in his face "come on die… you must die."
