The Dubai Public Prosecution referred the suspects to the Criminal Court, which began hearing the case on Sunday.

He was surprised after seeing the broken door of the shop. He also noticed the damages to the ATM inside it and informed the police. According to testimony of a police officer, the investigation team checked footages of surveillance cameras that showed the gang members attempting to rob the ATM.
They were identified and arrested, the officer added, noting that they confessed to the crime.
The Court ordered their continued detention pending the case.
Separately, the Criminal Court of Dubai on Sunday heard the first session of a case in which a gang of 10 Asians, including two captains and eight sailors are accused of attempting to smuggle petroleum materials and transferring them to a ship’s tank offshore.
The Dubai Public Prosecution charged the defendants with transporting inflammable materials, in addition to dealing with dangerous materials and entering the country illegally. According to statement of the officer on duty, a ship and a launch monitored by the maritime inspectors, illegally entered the country’s territorial waters last July.
The officer explained that by arriving at the coordinates that were specified by the command and control room, he witnessed the exchange of petroleum materials between the ship and the launch.
Accordingly, the officer arrested them with the help of the rest of the members of the naval seizure. It was found out they were selling smuggled petroleum materials, and that the defendants entered the country illegally.
They confessed to the charges, the officer added. The court ordered their continued detention.
The defendants were carrying a radio similar to police’s, and showed some cuffs then asked the victims to accompany them to the police station.
The incident took place during last November, when the victim was driving in Al Qouz Area in the middle of the night, and came across the defendant who stopped him and asked for a ride.
