Four Bangladeshi and nine Indian workers died when their company bus hit a truck parked on Emirates Road in May.

Akm Mizanur Rahman, a official of the labour wing of the Bangladeshi consulate in Dubai, said it is likely the Bangladeshi victims’ families will appoint the consulate as their legal representative to receive the “blood money”.

Rahman said a Dubai Sharia (Islamic) court will judge who is responsible for the payout. More info
