Abu Dhabi / Al Ain – A Malayalee was released from prison after being arrested for smuggling large amounts of drugs without permission. The Al Ain Court of Appeal acquitted Noufal, who is a Palakkad native of Cherupulassery. Noufal was taken into custody on March 30, after he arrived at Al Ain International Airport along with his brother Noushad. Noufal found the box in which Noufal had packed the medication for Noushad. Noufal also had a prescription for this drug. Noufal was taken into custody by authorities on suspicion of overdose.

He was told that his brother was taking medication, but he did not have a prescription. They had the medication for six months. Noufal was also denied bail by the primary court. Noufal was sentenced to a fine of 20,000 dirhams, and his deportation. Then, he sought assistance from Meera Ali Al Jalaf Lawyers and Abu Dhabi Legal Consultants.

Noufal was cleared after appeals by Meera Ali Al Jallaf from Kottayam and John Mathew of Kottayam. The court was informed that Noushad’s personal medication was in Noufal’s box at the time it was packed by his relatives. Noushad was presented with the doctor’s prescription and bill for medicine. Noushad also received his earlier prescriptions and medical reports. Noufal was acquitted by the court after being convinced of the evidence. Prescription should be considered.
