Emirati policeman ‘gave secret information’ to Iranians

A B, 43, an Emirati police sergeant, is accused of providing a list of Dubai Police officers and their phone numbers to the Consulate of Iran.

ABU DHABI // A policeman passed on secret information to Iranian agents in return for discounted medical treatments for him and his family, the Federal Supreme Court has heard.

A B, 43, an Emirati police sergeant, is accused of providing a list of Dubai Police officers and their phone numbers to the Consulate of Iran.

In return, he was given discounts at the Iranian Hospital Dubai.

H K, an officer for State Security, said A B first made contact with employees at the consulate when he responded to a fire at its offices.

In return, the deputy consul provided him with a discount card for the Iranian Hospital.

A year later, A B, who speaks Farsi, was requested by his manager to go to the consulate to organise a travel visa for his wife.

A B met H S, an intelligence officer at the consulate. H S asked for information about Dubai Police and whether Emirati women are legally allowed to marry Iranians. He also requested a list of Dubai Police officers who were Shia Muslim. The purpose of such requests was not stated in court.

The lawyer requested three defence witnesses to testify in the next hearing. The hearing was adjourned to January 12.
