The man was being monitored when he received assignments from persons working for a foreign country.
The State Security Public Prosecutor, Rashid Ahmed Al Dhanhani, has said the public prosecution is currently interrogating M.A.B., an Asian, accused of collecting the UAE military and political secrets in favour of a foreign country.
He added that the accused had exploited his work at one of the UAE ports to illegally collect information about the critical military installations.
Al Dhanhani added that the state security authority had detected the activities of the accused, while receiving people working for the foreign country seeking to get those secrets.
He noted that the state security has referred the accused to the public prosecution after the completion of legal procedures, adding that he was remanded in custody, pending further investigations into the case.
