FUJAIRAH: A Khaleeji man has been sentenced to two years in jail and slapped with a fine of Dhs10,000 over drug abuse, the Criminal Court of Fujairah ruled on Tuesday.
According to police records, the convict was fortuitously stopped while driving his car by a traffic patrol to check his driver’s licence. The driving licence was found to have expired. Consequently, the man was detained and interrogated. He was then subject to a laboratory test, where he was found positive to psychotropic substances consumption. As a result, he was referred to the concerned authorities for further legal action.
In a separate incident, the Court looked into the case of another Khaleeji man accused of driving a vehicle with no number plate. He was caught by a traffic patrol in the emirate of Fujairah on Corniche Road. He too was detained and referred to the judicial departments.
