A state security prosecutor in the United Arab Emirates has charged a 59-year-old Iranian of committing a ‘hostile act against a foreign country’.

The manager of a commercial company that imports and exports to other countries allegedly imported a device from abroad to use it in the UAE. He was later accused of exporting the device to Iran, “violating international sanctions”.

Local UAE daily newspaper Al-Ittihad identified the foreign country in question as the United States.

The accused has denied the charges against him in court and his lawyer demanded a deferral for review to prepare a statement on behalf of his client.

The court has therefore postponed the case to July 29 to hear the defense’s appeal.
