No one knows who the giant man climbing out of the water in Abu Dhabi is

Yes, the last 12 months have been super weird and that’s continuing as no one knows who the giant man climbing out of the water in Abu Dhabi is.

The huge bronze-coloured sculpture has mysteriously emerged in the sea at the Yas Bay Waterfront in Abu Dhabi.

The huge sculpture has his head out of the water and a hand clambering towards the promenade behind Etihad Arena.

The National broke the story and asked property developer Miral for information about the artwork and the artist but nothing has been announced.

What we do know is he looks very cool and it must have taken weeks to build and then plunge into the water!

The area is an ongoing project including a large walkway with over 40 cafes, restaurants and shops.

Young Arab man on trial for stealing AED210,000 from his grandma

A young Arab man is on trial at the Ras Al Khaimah Civil Court after being arrested for stealing AED150,000 in cash and AED60,000 in jewellery from his grandma.

The Grandma initially reported the robbery to the police, believing ‘gangsters’ were behind the theft.

“They have also stolen my passport, mobile phone, birth certificate, ID, and the passport of my son,” she told the cops.

But when Ras Al Khaimah Police launched an investigation, they tracked down the suspects. Who much to Grandma’s surprise, turned out to be her grandson and his friend.

Not cool, dude, not cool!

The grandson had originally borrowed AED2,000 from his grandmother to pay off a debt. But after disappearing for a while, they were found with the missing jewellery and cash in the defendant’s car and inside their hotel room.

The grandma’s handbag, ID and mobile phone were also found in her grandson’s car along with a bottle of liquor.

At trial, the grandson admitted stealing the money from his Grandma.

“I put everything (I stole) in a bag and drove my car with a friend to a local hotel, where I kept the jewels in a safe.”

His accomplice, however, was not going by the same story, claiming the grandson had told him he had permission to take the money and jewels with the grandmother’s consent.

The civil court ordered that the money be re-united with the grandma. We’re not sure the same will be said for the grandson!
