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.
