Put that man in charge of a central bank

Gulf News (Dubai) --

A blacksmith denied in court yesterday that he had the magic powers to make $25 million fall from the sky by dealing with genies.  Prosecutors accused the 30-year-old Chadian blacksmith of dealing in sorcery and claiming that he had magical powers that could make $25 million (Dh92 million) fall from the sky.

He was additionally charged with possessing $34,000 in counterfeit currency for trading purposes.  "I am not guilty… I did not possess any counterfeit currency or claim any magical powers," argued I.O. when he defended himself before the Dubai Court of First Instance.
