In one of the documents presented to the court barrister ( and Baptist minister ) Najeeb I. Khalaf said that the court favored one party in the ” ROUMOUL CASE ” . The court decided to call lawyer Khalaf , who represented the Rifa3i family , for questioning. When called to defend himself, Khalaf stood up and began a lengthy defense on the right of the lawyer to use such terms. After more than 40 min of oral pleading, a masterpiece, lawyer Khalaf died and fell to the ground. That was on July 11, 1944.
Lawyer Khalaf then at the end of his address, bowed his head in prayer , as he always did after an address, and then fell down dead. His young daughter, Marylee, saw in a dream her father in heaven a most beautiful place, and was much comforted so there were no more tears.
