The gang will be kicked out after serving their sentence
The Dubai Criminal Court sentenced a gang of three Africans to three months in prison, a fine of 4,000 Dh and deportation after serving their sentence, for removing environmental protection devices installed in the systems of exhaust cars and have them sold.
The incident dates back to last September, when a sales supervisor at a rental car company discovered a loud noise in one of his vehicles parked outside a store in the Ras Al Khor industrial zone in Dubai.
According to his testimony, he took the car to a workshop, where the technician confirmed that the vehicle’s carbon emission device installed in the exhaust system had been removed, which was the reason for the loud noise.
The sales supervisor then reported the case to the police station. An investigation was carried out after which the accused were arrested.
Investigations found that the gang used to rent cars from multiple rental companies, remove carbon-emitting devices, sell them, and then return the car to the company.
