Dubai based newspaper Gulf News added quoted a chief prosecutor as saying “Today (November 23) morning, the convict was taken from his confinement at Dubai Central Jail, where he had been waiting for the rulers approval to have the death sentence executed ... a special execution team carried out the sentence in the presence of high ranking officers, senior prosecutors and other involved law enforcement bodies. Justice has been served and the ruling was carried out.”
In February, Dubai’s Cassation Court rejected the appeal lodged by the Jordanian convict, Nidal Eisa Abdullah, 48, and upheld his death sentence given by lower courts.
UAE residents had, earlier, taken to social media expressing their anger and shock over the crime, with some calling for the public execution of his murderer.
The body of Obaida Ibrahim al-Aqrabawi was discovered in the Al Warqa area of Dubai on Sunday after missing for two days. He was last seen playing outside his home in the Industrial Area of Sharjah.
Dubai Police Chief Major General Khamis Al Muzeina said, then, the child was kidnapped from in front of a garage in Sharjah’s industrial area, where the boy’s father worked.
