A one-year prison term was imposed against an Eastern European gang was upheld by the Dubai Court of Appeal. They were fined a total of Dh1,400,000. After they finish their time in prison, they will be deported.

 

A 2019 Lamborghini worth approximately Dh1,400,000 was reported stolen in March by a representative of a luxury vehicle rental company.

 

One of the defendants, according to his testimony, rented the vehicle for seven days and paid the rental fee, along with the necessary paperwork.

 

He also said that the accused took possession of the vehicle after a company representative had delivered it to the accused's villa in Palm Jumeirah. The accused failed to return the car on time after the lease ended, prompting the victim to call the police.

 

He went on to say that the accused had accepted delivery of the vehicle at his Palm Jumeirah villa's address and that when the lease expired, the accused had failed to return the vehicle by the specified date, at which point the company had to notify the police.

 

The Dubai Police conducted an investigation that led to the identification of the perpetrators. A preliminary investigation revealed that the first suspect rented the car, gave it to the gang members, and then left the country.

 

He went on to say that the accused had accepted delivery of the vehicle at his Palm Jumeirah villa's address and that when the lease expired, the accused had failed to return the vehicle by the specified date, at which point the company had to notify the police.

 

A police officer testified that all five suspects were located and apprehended as a result of the probes. During questioning, one of them admitted that they had been instructed to remove the navigation device's internal battery and replace it with one powered by an external source that would not reveal their illegal activities. One of the accused has admitted that he and the others helped them obtain new licence plates and alter the engine serial numbers. Using false paperwork, they handed the car over to a shipping firm for international shipment.
