A legal tussle was witnessed during the last court session when representatives of heirs to the deceased requested for amendment of charges from “murder as a result of robbery” to “premeditated murder with robbery”.

However, the defense counsel objected to the amendment request. The team of lawyers representing the deceased’s heirs comprise of Dr Ahmad Fathi Sorour and Dr Magid Al-Shrbaini from Egypt, and Fayez Sanhat Al-Mutairi from Kuwait.
