The Dubai Appellate Court rejected the appeal of an African gang of three persons to the verdict of the Court of First Instance imprisoning them for 3 months because the time scheduled for appeal has lapsed.

They were also fined Dhs4,000 and all them will be deported after serving their jail sentences.

According to the case file, the police charged the gangsters with stealing the Environmental Protection Device from the exhaust pipe of a parked vehicle in front of a vehicle repair shop in the Ras Al Khor Industrial Area in Dubai.

The details of the incident date back to September 2021, when the manager of a vehicle repair shop filed a report complaining that a vehicle parked outside the workshop had been robbed.

According to his testimony in the investigations, the technical team of the workshop parked the vehicle, belonging to a company, outside the workshop to prepare it for repair.

During the interrogations. the complainant added that he discovered a loud sound coming from the exhaust pipe of the vehicle and by examining it, he found that the device of protecting environment against carbon emissions had been stolen.

A policeman testified that investigators collected inferences and examined the surveillance cameras outside the workshop to see 3 Africans in the early hours of the morning, who headed towards the vehicle, stole the device attached to it and fled.

The policeman added that the suspects were identified and arrested, and upon interrogation, they confessed to stealing the device, selling it to a used spare parts store and sharing the money.
