UAE: Dubai Airport baggage handler sentenced for stealing a pen.

A Dubai Airport baggage handler was sentenced to six months for stealing a pen worth just Dhs5 from an item of luggage.

Dubai Court of First Instance was told the 30-year-old Ugandan was spotted rummaging through bags that were about to be loaded, but was unable to find any valuables.

An Emirati police officer, 35, said he was called to the handling area after the incident was spotted in January.

He said: “He confessed that he opened four bags and found nothing. He was searching the bags for passengers heading to Morocco.”
