Nonetheless, he was arrested the moment he returned home.

The case unfolded last January when a worker, named Mohamed Sabil Khan, hailing from Pakistan, rushed to the Fujairah Police and reported the theft of Dh11,000. The police initiated investigations, and took the fingerprints from the dwelling located in Sakamkam area. All the plaintiff’s friends and fellow mates were taken into custody, interrogated, and had their fingerprints collected.

A 22-year-old worker, identified as Asad Ali Amjad, a friend of the pursuer, proved to have fingerprints identical to the collected ones.

He disappeared since the time of the crime. Yet, the police could apprehend him the moment he arrived home late at dawn. When confronted with evidences, Asad admitted to sneaking to his friend’s room, breaking open his private box, where he used to keep his savings, robbed Dh11,000, but left Dh2000 to avoid qualms. He wasted the whole money at a nightspot with friends and sex workers. The accused was referred to the Public Prosecution, which charged him with robbery, and prayed that he be penalized in consonance with the rulings of Islamic Shariah, and the Federal penal Code.

The Fujairah Court of First Instance sentenced the culprit to six months in jail. Being discontented, the convict contested the judgment before the Fujairah Court of Appeal, which reduced the earlier jail term to three months.
