The Dubai Criminal Court has started the trial of an African construction worker who brought about 1.6 kilograms of marijuana, and tried to bring it into the country in a strange way, as he put it in a plastic bag and carried it with his hand inside Dubai Airport.
An inspector of Dubai Customs said in the investigations of the Public Prosecution that the suspect’s bag was suspected by customs inspectors in the devices department of the Interior, so they followed the bag until it reached the baggage receipt area in the “Arrivals” hall. .
The inspector added that he carefully searched the accused’s bag, but he did not find any prohibited substances, but he noticed that he was carrying a plastic bag in his hand, so he decided to search him to find herbal foodstuffs, and inside were small black plastic bags containing a herb that had the distinctive appearance of marijuana.
By asking the accused about the incident, he stated that he met a person in the rain of his country and asked him to carry this bag with him to deliver it to a person in the Emirates, without knowing that it contained marijuana, so he was referred to the General Department for Narcotics Control in Dubai Police, which in turn referred it to the Public Prosecution and from there to the court felonies that began his trial.
