A court in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) yesterday sentenced a man to seven years in jail after finding him guilty of joining the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.

The ruling was issued after the man was convicted of carrying out the Islamist group's instructions, the UAE's official news agency reported.

It added that the man had been found guilty of running charity works such as collecting alms and other donations that the court claimed were used to fund the group's activities.

Last year, the UAE added the Muslim Brotherhood to its list of "terrorist" organisations.

Meanwhile, the UAE Federal Court heard the appeal of another citizen, who was imprisoned for accusations of collaboration with a foreign state. It said the man told that foreign state the whereabouts of his work and this harms national security as he is a policeman.

The defence called for the release of this citizen, but court was adjourned until March.

Both the defendants went on trial without the attendance of their relatives, mass media or representatives of NGOs.

The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah's Law).

Prophet Mohammad PBUH

Narrated: Abu Huraira (R.A) that a man said to the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam: "Advise me! "The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Do not become angry and furious."
