Haram Crane Accident Caused By Heavy Rain And Lightning
The verdict of the Makkah Criminal Court was upheld by the Court of Appeal on August 4, 2021. This court acquitted all of the Crane Collapse case defendants. The criminal court in December 2020 acquitted all 13 defendants in the case, which included the Saudi bin Laden group. The Makkah court found that heavy rain and lightning were the main causes of the disaster.
The Supreme Court notified the respondents, the Appellate Court, and the relevant authorities of the new decision. The court met with 10 defendants. The court heard that the investigation into the incident, as well as the verdicts in this matter, had been completed. The Hajj season was at the time of the accident, so the crane hadn’t been properly checked. Work was stopped until safety was assured. https://www.pinterest.com/newsgulfin/
