Abu Dhabi, Aug 21 IANS | 29 days ago

UAE President Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan issued the country's anti-terrorism law Wednesday, state media reported.


Though the media report did not specify the details of the law, but so far no law in the UAE existed that defines the consequences for planning or committing terrorism in the country, Xinhua reported citing WAM report.

Since the outbreak of the Arab turmoil in some Middle Eastern countries, the UAE has arrested over 200 locals and foreigners accused of planning terrorist activities.

The state security court in Abu Dhabi also sentenced dozens of members of the Muslim brotherhood which is forbidden in Egypt since the ouster of former president and brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi.

The UAE and Egypt have agreed to join their hands in tracing down Muslim brotherhood members whom they accuse of planning terrorist actions in both countries.

In Jan, 2014, the court convicted 30 Muslim brotherhood members for prison terms ranging from three months to five years.

In July, 2013, the court also convicted 69 people of conspiring to overthrow the UAE government, while 25 suspects were acquitted.
