The driver was drunk and ran into the cyclists killing Roy Nasr and injuring two others and he gets one month of jail time? Is this some kind of sick joke? That’s unfreaking unbelievable!
I really don’t get it how a reckless idiot who kills a triathlon champion, a loving husband and a father of two like Roy gets jailed for one month and banned from driving for 3 months only. Someone should appeal this decision because it’s ridiculous!
A Dubai motorist who fatally injured former Arab triathlon champion Roy Nasr while driving under the influence of alcohol has been sentenced to one month in prison and ordered to pay AED200,000 ($54,451) in blood money to the victim’s family.
The accident occurred on the morning of September 6 when the 24-year old Philippines national swerved into a group of three cyclists, including Nasr, near Dubai’s Safa Park. Fifty-year old Nasr died, while his fellow cyclists sustained serious injuries. [Source]
