ABU DHABI // Five Emiratis and 14 Yemenis are being tried in Federal Supreme Court for alleged ties with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Fourteen of the defendants are accused of starting a Yemeni branch of the organisation in the UAE, while six face charges of aiding and abetting the group by not reporting them to authorities.
Thirteen of the defendants are also charged with raising funds for the group.
It is not clear whether the group had intent to commit acts of terror in the UAE, according to court documents.
The case was adjourned to April 4.
