The worker was sentenced to a year of imprisonment, followed by deportation from the country for stealing a bicycle at a metro station in Dubai.
In Dubai, a worker who lost in the court of appeal will be jailed for one year for stealing a bicycle and reselling it for 150 dirhams ($ 40).
It was established that a 34-year-old Pakistani man and his 32-year-old compatriot, using metal scissors, cut off the locks of a bicycle at the Shaikh Zayed Road station, and then sold it in the emirate of Sharjah in April last year.
In October, the Dubai Court of First Instance convicted two men of theft. As evidence were used recordings from surveillance cameras.
The police officer said in court: “We watched the crime scene for about a month, until the defendants returned there on May 18. They stood next to the bike racks at 4 p.m. and it seemed like they were waiting for the opportunity to steal another bike. When we arrested them, little metal scissors were found with them. During the interrogation, the 34-year-old admitted that he had to cut locks and steal bicycles, while the 32-year-old conducted surveillance. They were going to sell these bikes for 150 dirhams each in Sharjah. ”
The 34-year-old defendant tried to appeal the initial decision to the Dubai Court of Appeal, but presiding judge Saeed Salem bin Sarm rejected the defendant’s appeal and upheld the decision: the Pakistani will spend one year in prison and will be deported after serving his sentence.
The decision can be appealed to the Court of Cassation within 22 days.
