Drunk Asian man to be deported for urinating on street in UAE..
He will also serve a one-month jail sentence.
A man, who was convicted of urinating on the street after drinking alcohol, will be deported from the UAE.
The Federal Supreme Court in Abu Dhabi upheld earlier rulings by lower courts that handed down a one-month jail sentence to the Asian man after he was found guilty of illegally drinking of alcohol and urinating in the public. The top court also ordered that the man be deported after serving his jail sentence.
Official court records stated that the man was caught by authorities after he was found peeing on the street in a northern emirate.
Investigations revealed that the Asian was drunk when he peed.
Prosecutors had charged the man with illegal drinking of alcohol and urinating in the public, and demanded that he be given a harsh penalty.
Both the Court of First Instance and the appeal court sentenced the man to a month in jail after he was found guilty of the charges, but spared him from the deportation.
The public prosecution challenged the sentence in UAE’s top court stressing that people convicted in such crimes have to be deported from the country according to Article 121 of the Penal Code.
