The Sharjah Police UAE arrests five suspects including Africans

The Sharjah Police, in United Aran Emirates, on Monday, October 4th, busted an international gang that specialised in thefts targeting bank and hotel clients. The gang, who are considered one of the most dangerous international criminal syndicate were planning to rob bank clients in various European countries by stealing their bank account numbers but their plans were foiled by the police.

A top official at the CID said the police received information about the illicit activity of the criminals who are based in Sharjah. The police immediately formed a team comprising officers from the anti-fraud department to look into the case. The operation resulted in the arrest of five suspects from various nationalities, including two African nationals.

Unveiling details about the case, Colonel Ibrahim Mussabah al Ajel, Director of the CID department, said the gang would steal information of credits cards that belonged to bank clients inside and outside the country and use the information to withdraw cash from various countries. The gang worked in coordination with employees of hotels and gold shops as well as shopping mals whose main duty was to scan the bank accounts of the victims who visit their outlets and use their cards for payment. The employees were lured by the gangsters that they would be offered money.

It was discovered that the gang had contacted a manager of a popular hotel in the UAE and asked him to issue bills in names of European tourists and withdraw cash from their accounts from banks based in their countries. They offered the manager 40 per cent of the total cash they would get from the European banks.

On receiving the tip off, the federal crime police informed the Sharjah Police Criminal and Investigation Department and a CID team team was formed to launch a probe in cooperation with members of a team specialised in combating embezzlement.

The team put up a trap in coordination with hotel manager to catch the culprits. The manager thus set up an appointment with the culprits who arrived on time with their list of international and local bank clients. While explaining to the hotel manager on how to carry out the theft operation, the police raided the place and arrested the culprits red-handed.

During interrogation, the gang confessed their plans to steal cash from European banks with the help of people based within the country. Col Ibrahim Al Ajill, Director-General of Sharjah Police hailed the cooperation between the Sharjah CID and Federal CID department which resulted in busting the gang which used the country as a platform to carry out their international crimes.

He explained that the gang members contacted many hotels and gold shops managers to involve them in the crime, but they all refused, and instead, and informed the police. The suspects are currently detained and will be referred to the Public Prosecution.

Donald Trump Agrees to meet Kim Jong Un

The United States President Donald Trump has agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the White House announced, setting the scene for a historic, unprecedented encounter.

The meeting, which would be the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader, will happen by May, according to South Korea’s national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, who delivered the invitation to Trump after a visit by his delegation to Pyongyang earlier this week.
The stunning announcement is the culmination of a diplomatic whirlwind that began with the invitation of a North Korean delegation to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. Trump’s decision to meet Kim, after a year in which the two have repeatedly traded insults, is a remarkable breakthrough — albeit one with uncertain consequences.

The South Korean delegation, which landed in Washington, D.C. for a debriefing Thursday on the North-South talks, was careful to praise Trump’s influence over the developments. Chung said the US President’s “leadership” and his administration’s pressure on the North Korean regime had “brought us to this juncture.”

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement that Trump “greatly appreciates the nice words” of the delegation and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
“He will accept the invitation to meet with Kim Jong Un at a place and time to be determined. We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea. In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain.”

There are many details to be ironed out before the meeting could take place, including the location. The Panmunjom truce village in the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), one possible venue, hosted meetings between North and South Korea in the run-up to the Winter Olympics.

Nokia 7 Plus Sold Out In 5 Minutes In China

Nokia 7 Plus Sold Out In 5 Minutes In China

The first batch of Nokia 7 Plus  releases in China has reportedly sold out in 5 minutes. Can I imagine ?

As soon as the virtual shop doors opened at 10:07am, it took only 5 minutes for all available units of the new Nokia phone to be sold out.

The phone sold for CNY 2,300 for the 4GB/64GB version and CNY 2,500 for the 6GB/64GB version (that’s €239 and €318 respectively).

There will be another batch available in about a week – on March 15 at 10:07am. Chances are that the new batch will be gone just as quickly. Of course, neither HMD nor the stores will say how many phones are in a batch.

As for people not in China, we’ll have to wait until April. The Nokia 7 plus is set to cost €400 in Europe (and it doesn’t look like the Old Continent will get the 6GB RAM version).

King Mohammed VI of Morocco undergoes Successful Heart Surgery in France

King Mohammed VI of Morocco yesterday underwent a successful heart surgery in France, state news agency MAP reports.

The 54-year old monarch was treated at a Ambroise Paré Clinic in Paris after he had been diagnosed with an “atrial flutter”. The surgery normalised the heart rhythm, and the king would be able to resume his duties without any restrictions.

The photo of King Mohammed VI on the hospital bed, surrounded by relations has since leaked on the internet. A full statement from MAP read:

“HM the king had on Saturday 20th January 2018 a heart rhythm disorder. The doctors of HM the King said that medical examinations carried out for this purpose revealed an atrial flutter. The ablation by radio frequency of this arrhythmia, performed today at the Ambroise Paré clinic in Paris, allowed the normalization of the heart rhythm. At the end of a rest period as prescribed by his treating physicians, HM the King will resume his normal activities without any restriction.”

Statement by the medical team composed of: Dr Abdelaziz Maouni, Dr Olivier Thomas, Dr Sébastien Bloc, Dr Olivier Dubourg, Dr Ali Chaib, Dr Lahcen Belyamani. The king, who heads the Muslim world’s longest-serving dynasty, took office in 1999 after his father, Hassan II, died of a heart attack.

The political and social stability of Morocco is closely watched by Western governments as it is the only country in North Africa where jihadist groups have failed to gain a foothold, and is an important partner against Islamist militancy in terms of intelligence-sharing.

The kingdom has escaped mass uprisings such as in Egypt, Libya or other Arab countries, but protests have erupted since 2016 in some rural areas against poverty and unemployment. Morocco has averted previous protests with a combination of limited constitutional reforms, heavy policing and hefty public spending.
