Asian diesel smugglers to be sentenced

Three Asian men accused of trying to smuggle diesel into the UAE have stood trial in Ras Al Khaimah and are to be sentenced on September 7, newspapers reported on Monday.

The three were caught last month by RAK coast guards as they entered the UAE territorial waters from another country with a diesel shipment.

During interrogation by the prosecutor, the three denied they were smuggling diesel to the UAE, saying they entered the country’s territorial waters by mistake.

The lawyer for the three has asked for their acquittal in court after they pleaded not guilty to all charges.
