    Didn't you forget the word, "anyone"?
    I think he menas you can remove "there" and the sentence makes sense.

    It still wouldn't make sense. It would if he was asking a question. But he was suggesting that whether or not he lied someone should be responsible, no?

    I don't know. His sentence was so poorly constructed that I couldn't make heads or tails and I'm just guessing.

    Looks like the guy is in for up to 7 years for the crime of "offending the head of a foreign state"

    Source [News 24 | Shoe-thrower faces up to 7yrs]

    Baghdad - The Iraqi journalist who became a star in the Arab world when he hurled his shoes at visiting US President George W Bush and called him a dog, appeared before a judge on Wednesday, his brother said.

    Durgham al-Zaidi said he and another brother were told by the investigating judge that 29-year-old Muntazar al-Zaidi "had cooperated well," but gave no details.

    Under Iraqi law, Zaidi faces up to seven years in jail for "offending the head of a foreign state".
    Note that it isn't for assault - it's for the insult, which is apparently against the law in Iraq.

    But, throwing a shoe or showing the foot sole to another person is an insult or an offense for Arabians.

    Yes, which is why he's being charged with insulting the head of a foreign state. I have a feeling that I missed the point of your post
