A Sri Lankan expatriate was executed in the United Arab Emirates for the murder of an Emirati resident.

Ravinda Krishna Pillai, a 19-year-old male electrician, was convicted of premeditated murder after he was found guilty of fatally running over the Emirati in an SUV during an argument between the two.

The execution by firing squad took place last morning in Sharjah.

Executions are rare in the UAE and a leading official told Arabian Business authorities had made every effort to persuade the victim’s family to accept Pillai’s offer of blood money but they insisted on the death penalty being enforced.
