Couple get death for killing Emirati poet
A court in the eastern oasis town of Al Ain sentenced an actress from another Gulf country and her current husband to death on Monday after they were convicted of murdering her ex-husband, a well-known Emirati actor and poet.
The victim’s relatives clapped and chanted when the court issued the sentence against the couple after they rejected blood money and insisted on the execution of the killers.
Police records showed Ahmed Hussein Mousa Salari has just finished meeting his daughter and left a government social centre when his ex-wife knocked him over with her car on the road between Al Ain Zoo and the traffic department early last year.
As he tried to move, he was run over again by the actress’s current husband, resulting in his death.
