THE OBAIDA CASE SO FAR

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Nedal Issa Ab­dul­lah, 48, is on trial at Dubai Court of First In­stance:

On June 20, Ab­dul­lah pleaded guilty to rap­ing and killing Obaida. He also ad­mit­ted drink driv­ing. But he de­nied kid­nap­ping Obaida on May 20, in­sist­ing the boy came with him will­ingly and the trial con­tin­ues.

Ab­dul­lah re­fused to at­tend the court hear­ing at Dubai Courts on June 27. The judge or­dered he be brought from soli­tary at Dubai Cen­tral Jail by force.

Ab­dul­lah ap­peared in court on Mon­day. Obaida’s fa­ther, Ibrahim, 43, gave ev­i­dence and told of how he came across Obaida in Ab­dul­lah’s car watch­ing car­toons on a phone, in the hours be­fore he van­ished.

The next hear­ing will be on June 18, when four of­fi­cers who in­ves­ti­gated the case will give ev­i­dence.
