Worker who stabbed wealthy father to death gets death sentence at Dubai court

A worker who stabbed a wealthy father of three to death was given the death penalty at Dubai Criminal Court on Wednesday.

Afghan visitor B?S, 21, was handed the death sentence, while his compatriots T?R, 21, and 22-year-old A?A were given life sentences for plotting to rob their Iraqi victim, H?K.

The victim was attacked by the three men, who stabbed him with two knives, mainly in the back.

The defendant?s claims that H?K tried to rape him are baseless.?Other witnesses testified that the victim was a decent man and a good husband.

The three Afghans were convicted of premeditated murder associated with robbery.

T?R and A?A will be deported after completing their jail terms. The verdict remains subject to appeal within 15 days.
