UAE: DEATH PENALTY FOR ALGERIAN WHO KILLED CHINESE MAN UPHELD
June 14, 2016: An Algerian man who murdered a Chinese man and stole more than Dh1 million from him has failed in his appeal against a death sentence in the UAE.
The Court of Appeal heard there was conclusive evidence to show that the murder was premeditated as he had been monitoring his victimâs movements for three days before committing the crime.
On the day of the murder, he entered the Chinese manâs building armed with a knife and wooden stick and attacked him in the lift, reportedÂ Aletihad, the sister newspaper ofÂ The National. (Sources: The National, 14/06/2016)
