Two men caught hid­ing 1.5kg of heroin in­side their shoes have been each given 10 years in jail. Abu Dhabi Crim­i­nal Court handed down the sen­tences to the Pak­istani men as they were found guilty of pos­sess­ing and deal­ing drugs. Court records stated that Abu Dhabi Po­lice ar­rested the men in Jan­uary 2016. A pros­e­cu­tor ear­lier told the court that the men aged 44 and 24, were caught in Al Sha­hama City. They had taken a taxi from an­other emi­rate, which was not men­tioned in court, and anti-drug squad of­fi­cers said they in­tended to deal drugs. One tried to flee af­ter see­ing po­lice ap­proach him, but he was caught by of­fi­cers. Both will be de­ported to Pak­istan on their re­lease.
