Judge rebukes lawyer over DNA gaffe in murder case

Lawyerwho did not realise DNA evidence had been presented against his client is told: 'As a defence lawyer, you should have studied the papers well.' .

ABU DHABI // A judge rebuked a lawyer in court yesterday for not realising DNA evidence had been presented against his client, who is accused of murder and sexual assault. The lawyer, representing a Pakistani, FS, told the judge his client did not intend to kill as he was acting in self-defence. He said FS was sitting with friends when the victim asked him to go outside. They walked a little and then the victim pulled a knife from his trousers and tried to stab his client, the lawyer said.

"My client did not have any weapons ... and was surprised," the lawyer said. "He took the knife because he was terrified." The lawyer said forensic science evidence showed cuts on his client's hands confirmed F S held the knife by its blade. When the judge asked him about the sex assault charge, the lawyer replied: "The other one is easy because there is no evidence against him, and he denied that before prosecutors."

Chief Justice Saeed Abdul Baseer said there was DNA evidence that corroborated the sex assault. "How do you rate yourself in terms of ethics?" he asked. "As a defence lawyer, you should have studied the papers well." The lawyer apologised and asked for leniency for his client on the sex assault charge and acquittal on the murder charge. The judge is expected to issue a verdict on October 5. @Email:hdajani@thenational.ae

Five famous companies founded by teens

There are numerous success stories of teen businesses that were created in college dorm rooms and other modest circumstances. Below are some of the most recognisable names in the industry:

  1. Facebook: Mark Zuckerberg and his friends started Facebook when he was a 19-year-old Harvard undergraduate. 
  2. Dell: When Michael Dell was an undergraduate student at Texas University in 1984, he started upgrading computers for profit. He starting working full-time on his business when he was 19. Eventually, his company became the Dell Computer Corporation and then Dell Inc. 
  3. Subway: Fred DeLuca opened the first Subway restaurant when he was 17. In 1965, Mr DeLuca needed extra money for college, so he decided to open his own business. Peter Buck, a family friend, lent him $1,000 and together, they opened Pete’s Super Submarines. A few years later, the company was rebranded and called Subway. 
  4. Mashable: In 2005, Pete Cashmore created Mashable in Scotland when he was a teenager. The site was then a technology blog. Over the next few decades, Mr Cashmore has turned Mashable into a global media company.
  5. Oculus VR: Palmer Luckey founded Oculus VR in June 2012, when he was 19. In August that year, Oculus launched its Kickstarter campaign and raised more than $1 million in three days. Facebook bought Oculus for $2 billion two years later.
