DUBAI// Two Dubai airport baggage handlers stole chewing gum and chocolate from passengers’ luggage, a court heard.
Kenyans AS, 24, and JN, 37, are accused of theft and attempting to steal cash from the bags.
AS is charged with stealing a packet of gum worth Dh3. JN is accused of stealing a Dh5 chocolate bar.
Both men, who have been fired from their jobs, denied the charges at Dubai Criminal Court on Tuesday.
Prosecutors claimed the men were searching through bags that had arrived on flight from Bangkok but failed to find anything valuable, so took the confectionery.
A verdict is expected on February 23.
