the trader said he had heard a noise in the garage and had come to see what it was.

the lebanese then tied the victim up and stole the cash from the safe. before leaving he also prised off the watch from the bound victim’s wrist. when his wife returned she found her sponsor bleeding.

on being freed the victim called a friend who immediately informed the police.

the woman was taken to the police station where she confessed she had engineered the robbery. subsequently her husband was arrested at the dubai international airport while trying to board a flight. the court will give its verdict on june 19.
