Man denies threatening to stab colleague to death, Abu Dhabi court hears

A taxi driver accused of holding a knife to his colleague's throat has denied threatening to stab his colleague to death, an Abu Dhabi court heard.

A taxi driver yesterday denied threatening to stab a colleague to death.

SH, from Bangladesh, was charged with telling SS, an Indian, that he would kill him if he did not sign off on a complaint filed against him at his office in Mussaffah.

Witnesses said the defendant entered the office then held a knife to the Indian’s throat.

“Where can I get a knife when I drive a taxi?” the accused asked the court in Abu Dhabi.

A verdict will be delivered on November 5.
