A court of appeals in Khorfakkan, United Arab Emirates (UAE) upheld a previous court verdict and sentenced a Sri Lankan woman to three years in prison and ordered her deportation from the UAE after she was found guilty of killing her newborn baby.

The court also ordered the woman to pay diya (blood money) to the baby’s relatives, according to local newspapers.

The woman had confessed to the prosecution that she got rid of her baby by stuffing him in a plastic bag and dumping him in the garbage. (Emirates 24/7)

    Poor woman. Tragic case. We have to look at her situation. The child was the result of either a rape or an illegal affair. "blood money to the relatives of the baby" means that the father was an Arab....

    she murdered a defenseless boy, she deserves to be killed or at least life imprisonment. There are no mitigating circumstances in this case to justify only 3 years in jail. Middle eastern justice murder= 3 years. driving offense = execution.
