9/6/2019 6:39:00 PM

Tehran (KNA) - A court in Saudi Arabia has dropped all charges against defendants being persecuted over a crane collapse onto the Masjid al-Haram (the Grand Mosque) in Mecca nearly four years ago, where more than a hundred worshippers were killed.

On Thursday, the Criminal Court in Mecca ordered the dismissal of the case against construction conglomerate Saudi Binladin Group, asserting that the trawler crane had been installed in a correct and safe position, and that none of the defendants were found to be negligent, Arabic-language al-Madina newspaper reported.

The court further claimed that the defendants had taken all the necessary precautions, holding stormy winds solely responsible for the collapse of the crane.
