BEIRUT: The case surrounding the tragic murder of Roula Yaacoub came to the forefront Thursday after State Prosecutor Samir Hammoud appealed a Criminal Court's decision to acquit her husband of the murder "based on a lack of evidence."
Despite presiding Judge Dany Chebli opposing the acquittal, he was overruled by the court's tow advisers who voted to dismiss the charges.
In 2013, Yaacoub suffered a severe beating allegedly at the hands of her husband Karam Al-Bazzi, before being transported to a hospital where she died.
After the harsh incident, Al Bazzi was briefly arrested and then released before charges were brought against him again but has not been detained.
