UAE: 17 INDIANS AWARDED DEATH SENTENCE IN MURDER CASE TO BE RELEASED
January 16, 2013: Decks have finally been cleared in United Arab Emirates for the release of 17 Indians, who were awarded death sentence for the killing of a Pakistani man in Sharjah, where a local court wrapped up the case by ordering a compensation to two people injured in the incident.
According to a lawyer handling the case, the court has ordered payment of Dirhams 100,000 in compensation to the two injured people who had asked for compensation. Once this payment is made, the 17 Indians who were spared the death penalty earlier after being convicted of murder, will be released. (Sources: dayandnightnews.com, 17/01/2013)
