Police make heroin sting
The Arab Parliament has reaffirmed its stance towards the United Arab Emirates' peaceful approach to dealing with Iran’s occupation of the UAE's three Islands, Abu Musa and Greater and Lesser Tunb, through dialogue and good neighbourliness, urging Iran to end the occupation of the three Islands through holding direct negotiations or resorting to the International Court of Justice. Addressing the fifth session of the first legislative term of the Arab Parliament, Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Jarwan, the Speaker of the Arab Parliament renewed his call for the international community and UN to implement international resolutions through solving the Palestinian cause, establishing an Independent State of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital and deterring racial policies of the Zionist entity against the Palestinians. He affirmed that all these policies run counter to all international laws, according to a report by the Middle East news agency WAM. Dubai Police arrested two drug dealers for the possession and sale of 4.6kg of heroin. Colonel Eid Mohammed Al Thani, director of the Dubai Anti-Narcotic Department said that the operation happened in May when they received information about the two men, described as Asian and aged 35 and 26, who were possessing heroin and looking for someone to smuggle it into a neighbouring country. “We sent an undercover policeman claiming that he could smuggle the drugs for them,” Colonel Al Thani said. “We set a trap and arrested them while they were handing over the drugs.” They were referred to the Dubai Public Prosecution after they admitted to possessing the drugs.
