Today, the Lebanese judiciary charged Fadi Al-Hashem, the husband of the artist Nancy Ajram, with intentional murder against the background of killing a man with a mask who infiltrated his house in the Kesrouan area north of Beirut, with the aim of theft, at the beginning of this year, and threatened to kill him and his family.
The investigating judge in Mount Lebanon, Nicolas Mansour, issued a criminal decision accusing Al-Hashem of killing the Syrian Muhammad Al-Mousa with 18 bullets from a military pistol inside his home in Mount Lebanon..
Judge Mansour considered that Al-Hashem’s actions apply to the crime of intentional killing stipulated in Article 547 of the Penal Code, which provides for hard labor for up to 20 years, but the investigating judge favored this crime to Article 228 of the Penal Code, which exempts the perpetrator from punishment if the crime occurred In the context of legitimate self-defense.
Judge Mansour Al-Hashem referred to the Criminal Court in Mount Lebanon for trial.
Moussa had infiltrated the villa of the artist Ajram in New Suhaila, about twenty kilometers north of Beirut on the night of the fourth to the fifth of last January, while he was masked and armed with a pistol..
Moussa arrived at the bedroom of Al-Hashem’s three children, and threatened to kill him and his family if he did not guide him to the treasury of money and jewelry, so Al-Hashem rushed to bring his pistol, and shot the attacker and killed him with 18 shots..
Judge Mansour indicated, in the merits of his indictment, that “Al-Hashem’s exaggeration in firing so many bullets at the dead body expresses that he has exhausted all means of self-defense, and it appears that it is the result of a revolution of anger and fear on his wife and children.”
Al-Hashem was arrested shortly after the accident to carry out the legal requirement, but he was released after two days and left under investigation and banned from traveling.
