4 years for not knowing hashish is illegal

A jobless Indian, who told Dubai Courts that he did not know consuming hashish is illegal in the country, was sentenced to four years in jail on Wednesday.

SS, 22, would also be deported after serving his jail term.

The convict had admitted to the accusation of consuming hashish before the jury.

However, he defended that he did not know consuming hashish is illegal in the country.

The accused was arrested on May 22 and his test proved positive to the hashish and marijuana.

SS admitted before the police that he had consumed hashish two days before his arrest in his accommodation in Dubai.
