Saman Abbas, legal father: “From quotation marks in Pakistani dialect it is not possible to deduce confession”

“Whoever released documents damaged the process”

” What we are talking about is a quotation mark reported in a statement from which it cannot be inferred that there was a confession, we are not even aware that it was Shabbar Abbas who spoke ”. The lawyer Simone Servillo, lawyer of Shabbar Abbas, father of Saman, the young Pakistani woman who disappeared on 30 April 2021 from Novellara, in the province of Reggio Emilia, underlines this to Adnkronos after she had opposed an arranged marriage.

” We have the brogliaccio of a transcription of a telephone wiretapping relating to two people who spoke a Pakistani dialect – he explains – We need to see if it has been translated well and if the sentence is to be understood in a literal or figurative sense. The wiretapping must be taken with the springs and the history of our trials teaches us that very often wrong interpretations in the trial field have led to blunders ”.

” I don’t know who released that information but whoever did it has taken on a great responsibility – underlines the lawyer – We will have a trial before a Court of Assizes and that the documents begin to come out right now is a damage irremediable to the trial. Basically it affects the ‘freshness’ of the judge who must take on certain elements in the trial. Those who published that information damaged the process ”.
