The two men were accused of spying against the country in collaboration with an intelligence officer at a foreign embassy in the UAE. The court found that the Pakistani used to work as a driver at a public institution, and had relations with an intelligence officer at a foreign embassy.
The intelligence officer paid him to take photos of officials and visiting delegations and he later confessed to having delivered information about the visiting delegates to the intelligence officer for a Dhs30,000 fee. He also said he used to visit the embassy frequently to meet the intelligence officer.
The first accused said he met the officer at the Iranian Hospital in Dubai and in a restaurant on Defence Street in Abu Dhabi, adding that the intelligence officer asked him to take photos of strategic sites in the UAE.
Meanwhile, the court did not find any tangible evidence against the second defendant and found him not guilty.
