The violent incident was subsequently reported to the police and has now led to, that the bus driver has been indicted for aiding and injury.
According to the assistentanklageren Marie Johnson, the victim and two witnesses told about the incident in a very comprehensive and detailed way. In the proof will also be used photographs of the physical damage to the Ahmad Rekkabs body as well as damage to his clothes and shoes.
the bus Driver refuses, however, everything. In an interview with the police he explained that he even at one point tried to open the door. And it was the reason why his arm was stuck.
the defence lawyer Ralph Ekman also says that the driver is disputing that Ahmad Rekkab must have hung outside his bus, while the bus drove.
According to the defence counsel can the bus not run if the doors are not closed properly.
To Expressen he says the following:
My client is very upset over the whole matter, as he seems deeply unfair. He also says that he had been able to see in the wing mirror, if someone had hung stuck in the door outside the bus, telling Ralph Ekman.
In Gothenburg, there is camera surveillance in buses and trams. But the police have in this case not asked to receive the film from the surveillance camera. They are in fact deleted within 24 hours.
Trafikområdechefen Henrik Cederqvist from the bus company Keolis, which is responsible for buses in Gothenburg, said, in fact, that the bus according to a technical study will brake, if one of the busdørene is open. The said bus is also studied, and it shows no errors.
