The two women were arrested and the amounts in their possession, seized. The court sentenced them to one month in jail to be followed by deportation and ordered the seized money to be confiscated.
Khalid Hassan Al Mutawa, assistant chief prosecutor, who initiated investigation ainto the case, said the two women had been arrested in co-operation with the anti-begging authorities and taken to the police station before being referred to the public prosecution for interrogation.
