Three men who were prosecuted for defrauding their victim by claiming they could use jinn to increase his wealth, have had their conviction overturned.

They were originally sentenced to a year in jail and deportation.

The third defendant took his appeal to Federal Supreme Court, arguing that the reasoning behind his conviction was too vague. The court accepted the cassation.
