SHARJAH // A man who slit his mother’s throat and kept her body in his flat for 10 days told a court she had returned from the dead and dropped the charges against him.
“I have a waiver,” 29-year-old Emirati N L told Sharjah Criminal Court. When asked who the waiver was from, N L said it was from his dead mother.
N L was referred to Al Amal Psychiatric Hospital in Dubai for a second evaluation after a report from his initial test was inconclusive.
“You will be sent to Al Amal Hospital,” the judge told N L, who became irritated at the ruling.
“Are you content, this is unjust,” N L said before he was taken back to his cell.
The court was told N L was aware of his surroundings during his first evaluation but he was not cooperative and answered few questions.
He admitted murdering his 50-year-old mother last year, claiming Allah ordered him to kill her for performing witchcraft.
Police found the woman’s body at N L’s flat when they arrested him on June 7 last year for attacking an Iranian supermarket worker with a knife at a store in Mamzar.
When confronted about his failure to answer questions, N L told the court: “They were the same questions asked by the court and I am well. I don’t suffer from any illness.”
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for N L. The next hearing will be on March 24.
