The man in whose apartment a huge fire broke out, killing 71 people in a London tower block a year ago, was not to blame for the disaster but has been subjected to "sleazy accusations" and innuendo, his lawyer told a public inquiry Wednesday.Behailu Kebede lived in Apartment 16 on the fourth floor of Grenfell Tower, a 24-story block in west London where the fire started.The lawyer for Kebede, who is originally from Ethiopia, Wednesday called for the inquiry to clear him of any responsibility for the blaze, Britain's deadliest on domestic premises since World War II which raised questions about U.K. social housing, building regulations and fire safety rules.It was refurbished between 2012 and 2016, and fire safety experts have told the inquiry that several aspects of those recent works had made the tower unsafe.
