UAE Court Jails Citizen for Spying
[An Nahar] A United Arab Emirates court sentenced an Emirati national married to an Iranian woman to seven years in jail on Tuesday after convicting him of spying, the official WAM news agency reported.
Salem Musa Fairuz Khamis was convicted of "having contact with a foreign country" at the Supreme Federal Court, the UAE's highest court, WAM said.
The defendant had confessed to establishing contact in 2008 with two officials at an unnamed consulate "to help him with a private matter concerning his Iranian wife," it said.
