UAE overturns prison sentence for American convicted of money laundering

DUBAI (Reuters) – A court in the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday overturned a prison sentence for U.S. citizen and rights lawyer Asim Ghafoor, a lawyer representing Ghafoor said.

Ghafoor was ordered to pay a fine of 5 million dirhams ($1.36 million), his lawyer told Reuters.

Ghafoor was detained last month while transiting through Dubai airport on charges related to an in absentia conviction for money laundering.
