The Dubai Criminal Court sentenced a European man to five years in prison and fined him Dhs20,000 for the charge of facilitating drug abuse to a girl who was referred to the Misdemeanour Court.
The convict would be deported after serving the terms, the Court ruled.
The case dates back to last February, when reliable information was forwarded to the Anti-Narcotics Department at Dubai Police about a person consuming narcotics and psychotropic substances and possessing a quantity of them in his house in the Palm Island area in Dubai.
The Anti-Narcotics Department initiated investigation into the report and it was confirmed that the mentioned person abuses narcotics.
The police arrested him at his house, where amount of cannabis was in his possession.
The police also found in his girlfriend’s bag, a quantity of the same narcotics.
The convict admitted possessing the seized narcotics with intent to consumption, and that he had supplied the accused with cannabis for the same purpose too, free of charge, at her request.
He added that she is his girlfriend and lives with him in the same apartment, the Court heard.
He admitted to Dubai Police that the European defendant was supplying him with the drugs for free.
The illegal drugs were concealed inside used vehicle spare parts, which prompted Dubai Customs to nickname the operation 'Gear Box'
