A court in the United Arab Emirates has sentenced an Indian expat to 10 years in prison followed by deportation for espionage, local press reported on Thursday.

An Abu Dhabi appeals court found the man -- who was not identified -- guilty of “sharing sensitive information about movements of military ships” with an unspecified country, according to the Gulf News daily.

The United Arab Emirates last year sentenced an Indian citizen to five years in prison for spying for his country, Gulf News reported at the time.

A number of other expatriates have been convicted of espionage in the UAE in recent years, including Pakistanis and Qataris.
