Carrying Khas Khas Packet Leads Indian To Dubai Jail

Dear Friends, Yesterday I came to know of a case from a friend of mine which is very scary. One of his friends was travelling to the UK via Dubai. Unfortunately, he was carrying a packet of Khas Khas which is a commonly used spice in some Indian curries and sweets. Khas Khas is also known as poppy seed which can be sprouted to grow narcotics (afeem etc.).  Unaware of recent laws: This innocent person did not know that recently the laws in UAE and other Gulf countries have been revised and carrying Khas Khas is punishable with a minimum of 20 years of imprisonment or even worse with the death penalty. Currently, the person has been in jail in Dubai for the last two weeks.  Lawyer Fees AED 100,000! His friends are frantically trying hard for his release but are finding that this has become a very very serious case. Lawyers are asking huge fees amounting to AED 100,000 even to appear in court to plead for his innocence.  Prohibited articles: Please forward this email to all you know, es
