Under UAE law, the driver will be jailed for at least three years if convicted of wrongly causing the death of a number of people while intoxicated.
So, why did this guy only get 3 months......?

I can't see that he would even have been charged yet, this only happened a few days ago.

Three months for killing three innocent people while drunk driving (so one month per life).

One year for not appearing in court.

The sad thing is, I'm no longer lost for words as this is the norm.

"God’s divine care helped avoid a bigger disaster as a sports utility vehicle had just left the restaurant’s parking few minutes before the crash, said the head of TPP."

http://gulfnews.com/news/gulf/uae/co...runk-1.1214306

And...

"According to the Penal Law, a suspect who causes an accident that leads to three or more deaths while under the influence of liquor, could face between three to seven years in jail and a fine."

Or 3 months...
