Ninety illegal residents arrested in Sharjah Police campaign

Ninety illegal residents have been arrested in Sharjah.

The men were from Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia and Nigeria, said a police spokesman.

They were arrested last week as part of a campaign to find illegal residents who did not leave in February's visa amnesty. Police said some of the men were wanted for their involvement in crimes such as begging, illegal street vending and gambling.

The spokesman urged any members of the public with information on illegal residents to call police on 06 5632222 or email najeed@shjpolice.gov.ae.
