An Emirati man has been sentenced to 10 years in jail by the State Security Circuit of the Supreme Federal Court for joining a banned secret group of the Muslim Brotherhood.
AR.Kh.B. was ordered by the court to be placed under surveillance for a period of three years after he served the jail term. He was convicted of joining Al Islah organisation, which is affiliated to the banned Muslim Brotherhood group.
The prosecution accused him also of assuming a senior post with the organisation that planned to overthrow the regime of the UAE and seize power.
The court condemned another Emirati, identified as H.S. Kh.A,, to seven years in jail after he was convicted of joining Al Islah organisation.
He took up the post of the manager of one of the offices of the organisation in the country. He was also blamed of promoting the ideologies and thoughts of the Muslim Brotherhood amongst the young people here.
In a third ruling, the court ordered S.H.A.Sh. to serve three years in jail for the charges brought against him.
He was accused of promoting Daesh through graffiti, mottos and drawings, and writing offensive phrases against senior officials in the country on the walls of roads and tunnels.
The court, meanwhile, looked into other ten cases related to state security, and reviewed the medical reports of some suspects.
It adjourned the ten cases to December 12, based upon requests by the attorneys of the suspects.
