Dubai visitor caught at airport with 1kg heroin, court hears
The drugs were packed in 72 capsules
A Dubai visitor, who was caught at the airport with over 1kg of heroin, stood trial at the Court of First Instance on Thursday.
Dubai public prosecution records show that the case dates back to September 25 when the 24-year-old Afghan man was arrested at the Dubai International Airport in possession of 72 capsules containing heroin. He was referred to the General Directorate of Anti-Narcotics and remains in detention ever since.
The public prosecution referred the defendant to trial on charges of importing and possession of drugs. The authority recommended a stiff punishment for the accused.
The technical report of the Crime Lab showed that the quantity seized from the visitor was heroin and weighed more than 1kg.
