In Fujairah

The Sharia Court has sentenced four youngsters to five years in prison for kidnapping and sexually assaulting a boy. They were among a gang of seven. The court also sentenced another three men to 10 years and 80 lashes for kidnapping and raping a Filipina.

In the first case, two other members of the gang were sent to a juvenile rehabilitation centre. The seventh was sentenced to a year in jail as an accomplice in the boy's abduction.

In the second case the three defendants were found guilty of breaking into the Filipina's house in Fujairah, dragging her to a remote area and then assaulting and raping her.

The first defendant was sentenced to another year in prison and an extra 100 lashes for committing adultery with the same woman. The second defendant was sentenced to another six months for drinking and driving under the influence of alcohol. His driving licence was suspended for a year.
