Man pleads not guilty to murder bid.
AN Iranian man is to stand trial in April after he denied a charge of attempted murder.
Ali Ahmadi, 22, pleaded not guilty to the attempted murder of another man on February 25 last year.
He also denied wounding the man with intent to do grievous bodily harm.
Ahmadi, of Kildare Street, Ayresome, Middlesbrough, appeared for the short hearing at Teesside Crown Court via video link to HMP Durham, aided by a Kurdish Sorani interpreter on Wednesday.
Duncan McReddie, defending, said Ahmadi maintained he "was not responsible for the attack and the allegation is completely false".
Judge Simon Bourne-Arton QC, the Recorder of Middlesbrough, remanded Ahmadi in custody until a trial starting on April 23.
