Friends ac­cused of drug smuggling

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Four men have been ac­cused of at­tempt­ing to smug­gle two mil­lion banned pills from the UAE to Saudi Ara­bia. The group were de­tained at the Al Ghuwaifat bor­der cross­ing in May. The Crim­i­nal Court in Al Dhafra heard that the main de­fen­dant in the case, an Arab na­tional, was driv­ing an SUV when it was pulled over by po­lice and searched. Of­fi­cers found 2,000,126 nar­cotic pills of nar­cotics, a prose­cu­tor said. The ve­hi­cle had un­der­gone mod­i­fi­ca­tions to al­low pack­ages to be hid­den in the in­te­rior and inside the seats. The de­fen­dant took the po­lice to his house, where the other de­fen­dants were ar­rested. All four deny traf­fick­ing in drugs.
