He will be deported after serving the sentence.

The State Security Chamber at the Federal Supreme Court on Monday turned down an appeal filed by M.A.A.S, a 34-year-old Asian man accused of acts of terrorism.

The court upheld the ruling of the Abu Dhabi Federal Court of Appeal to condemn him to a 10-year imprisonment term and to deport him from the country after serving the jail sentence and paying the legal fees.

The State Security Prosecution had accused the aforementioned of intentionally setting fire to a place of worship with the purpose of terrorism in addition to intentionally destroying a number of lamps and surveillance cameras owned by another worshiping place.

Accordingly, the first judgment is now irrevocable and final.
