Foul Play Ruled Out In Death Of Children

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Aug. 16 (UPI) — A high court in the United Arab Emirates has ruled foul play was not involved in the food poisoning deaths of two French children at a Dubai restaurant in 2009.

However, the Dubai Cassation Court rejected the appeal of a doctor, a cook and a supervisor who were held liable by a lower court for the deaths of Chelsea D’Souza, 7, and her brother Nathan, 5, after eating at the Lotus Garden Restaurant, Gulf News reported Tuesday.

An appeals court earlier handed the three defendants six-month suspended jail sentences and fines of $5,445 each. They were also ordered to jointly pay the children’s parents $108,905.

Names of the defendants were not made public.

The supervisor and the cook were charged with violating public health requirements while the doctor was charged with negligence in providing medical care.

All three pleaded innocent to the charges.
