UAE: ABU DHABI COURT UPHOLDS DEATH SENTENCE FOR ONE OF THREE BROTHERS CONVICTED OF KILLING OMANIS
May 27, 2014: The Abu Dhabi Court of Appeal upheld the death sentence for one of three Emirati brothers convicted of killing two Omanis in 2012 as part of a blood feud.
A second brother had his death sentence reduced to 11 years in jail, while the third was found not guilty.
The Criminal Court had previously found all the brothers guilty and sentenced them to death.
After almost a year, the appeals court only upheld H Aâs death sentence for killing the Omanis M, 31, and O, 43.
The second brother, M A, was sentenced to 10 years for killing the first victim, but was cleared of possessing dangerous weapons and missiles.
The appeals court also sentenced H A and M A to an additional year in prison for killing the second victim, after his family waived their right to a death sentence. (Sources: thenational.ae, 27/05/2014)
