Defendants admit possessing and consuming drugs.

Dubai Three employees have been sentenced to four years in jail after they admitted to consuming drugs.

The Dubai Court of First Instance jailed the three Emirati employees, 39-year-old R.K., 33-year-old S.S. and 38-year-old M.J., for consuming different kinds of drugs such as morphine, codeine, heroin, cocaine and others.

When the defendants appeared in court last week, they pleaded guilty and sought a swift judgment so their dependent families could start benefiting from aids rendered by the Ministry of Social Affairs.

"We all confess that we committed such a huge mistake. We ask for forgiveness. We have families and are the sole source of income to our families. We want to be sentenced swiftly so our families could benefit from the social aids that are provided by the Ministry," said M.J. in courtroom.

Prosecutors charged R.K. with possessing a dark rigid piece weighing 0.04 grams that contained heroin, diazepam and veno parpetal and four pills of clonazepam and tramadol. He was also accused of consuming morphine, cocaine and codeine and other kinds of drugs.

S.S. was accused of consuming morphine, cocaine and codeine.

M.J. was charged with possessing promazepam and tramadol pills and consuming morphine, cocaine and codeine.

When the defendants listened to their judgments, they were heard thanking the judge.

The defendants were referred to Dubai Police's anti-narcotics department after customs officers prevented them from travelling to Oman, through Hatta boarder, because there were travel bans on R.K. and S.S.

Prosecution records said drugs and spoons that are usually used by addicts were found in the defendants' possession.
