Death Penalty in United Arab Emirates

           
Death Penalty by firing squad

Death Penalty by stoning

Open Executions are rare in the UAE. Since 1997, nine people including a woman, are known to have been executed in the UAE. All had been convicted of murder. A number of people have been sentenced to death for drug offences. However, no one is known to have been executed on drug charges.

Executions are usually by firing-squad" The execution which enforces Islamic sharia law is being carried out by a firing squad.

Death sentences may be appealed to the ruler of the emirate in which the offense is committed, or to the president of the federation, although in the case of murder, only the victim's family may commute a death sentence. The government normally negotiates with victims' families for the defendant to offer financial compensation, or diya, to the victims' families to receive their forgiveness and commute death sentences.
                      
Death Penalty by firing squad

United Arab Emirates member state Dubai has executed a Pakistani man, Attaullah Khair Mohammed by firing squad for murdering an Indian watchman. The official Emirates News quoted family sources as saying that Mohammed was put to death on Monday (June 01, 1998) morning at a local shooting range. A number of officials from the public prosecutor's office watched the execution.

The United Arab Emirates court of appeals in Al-Fujeira convicted an Iranian to death after he was found guilty of smuggling drugs. "The Gulf" daily published this (UAE to execute Iranian trader: United Arab Emirates, Judicial, 6/19/1998) in Dubai said the court sentenced one Iranian to 10 years imprisonment for smuggling drugs and another four Iranian as drug users. However, the sentence was resumed on the grounds of the law approved in 1995 providing for death penalty over drug smuggling. Between 1996-1998 eight persons have been executed in the UAE according to this law.

Death Penalty by stoning

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has sentenced foreign nationals to death by stoning for adultery.

In February 2000, a Shari'a (Islamic) court in the Emirate ordered an Indonesian domestic worker Kartini bint Karim, to be stoned to death, reportedly after she confessed to adultery. During her appeal, however, she reportedly denied that she had confessed to adultery and her lawyer is said to have argued that this would not have been possible as she does not speak Arabic.

Later, an appeal court in the Emirate of Fujairah, where she had been working legally, fortunately overturned the death sentence against Kartini bint Karim to one year's imprisonment, with an order that she be deported at the end of her sentence.
