This article is six weeks old, but I just found it: Rami Saba, one of two defendants charged with killing the missing Donald Dietz, has fired his attorneys, saying “I rely on Allah” to get him out of his predicament. Technically speaking, he’s going to represent himself, in spite of the judge telling him it was a terrible idea and basically begging him to get that nonsense out of his head.
Saba, who acknowledged his religious interest is relatively recent, had a basic knowledge of the legal system, but said that his faith in Allah was all he really needed. If he is convicted, and goes to prison for life, it will be Allah’s will, he said. […] Saba recently underwent a psychological evaluation, and was found competent to stand trial. Last week, his attorneys revealed to the court that Saba had in recent years been diagnosed with delusional disorder. But the information was not enough to change the examiner’s opinion that Saba is competent, Green told the court. […] He considers Allah the “best protector,” who would help him understand the law.
Good luck, Rami.
