An Arab man gets three years for murder Ethiopian girl

An Abu Dhabi court sentenced an Arab man for three years in prison after he was convicted of murdering an Ethiopian woman, rescinding an earlier death sentence by another court.

The court also ordered the unnamed man to pay Dh105,000 in blood money to the victim’s relative, ‘Al Ittihad’ daily reported on Wednesday.


The man, who had a relationship with the victim, had been sentenced to death but the verdict was reduced by a cassation court to 15 years. He appealed again and won a reduced sentenced.

The paper said the man had an argument with his Ethiopian girl friend at her house in Musaffah just outside the capital before he stabbed her 17 times.
