It added that all 10 men are residents of the Emirates, and most of them lived in the country, explaining that “they worked there for many years as managers, sales employees, CEOs of small companies, workers and drivers, and among them was a man who has lived and worked there for more than 40 years, and another was born and raised In the UAE”.
