Wanted terrorist from Jordan extradited to UAE for retrial

Wanted terrorist from Jordan, Khalaf Abd Al Rahman Humaid Al Rumaithi, has been extradited to the UAE where he will face a retrial.

The UAE’s Federal Supreme Court in 2013 found Al Rumaithi guilty of establishing a secret organization linked to the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood. He was sentenced in absentia.

Al Rumaithi was recently handed over to the UAE by Jordanian authorities. This was in accordance with the arrest warrant issued against him and the agreements concluded on legal and judicial cooperation of the Arab Interior Ministers’ Council tasked with the prosecution of criminals fleeing criminal justice in Arab countries.

According to the UAE Criminal Procedural Law, Al Rumaithi will be retried again, in accordance with the legal provisions, which stipulate that if an accused person is arrested against whom a judgment was passed in absentia or he turns himself in, he will be retried on the same charges against him.

The UAE Government reiterates “maintaining its sovereignty and stability, and safety and security of its citizens and residents, and that it will not hesitate to go after those wanted for justice and prosecute them in fair judicial process.” ICA/Expat Media
