Abu Dhabi police are trying to break the spell of sorcerers on ordinary people.

The police have launched an awareness campaign called Amman, encouraging people to come forward and report anyone practicing witchcraft or sorcery.

The drive comes in the wake of complaints from people who say they have been conned.

As part of the campaign, the police recently released a cartoon  illustrating a sorcerer as he tries to con a victim into giving him cash.

Psychologist Dr Mohammad Au Al A’ynean said people who resort to witchcraft to solve their problems are desperate. “They go to people practicising witchcraft as a last resort despite being aware that it won’t work,” she said.

Abu Dhabi police arrested four people in the last four months in four cases of witchcraft.

Residents have been asked to report such people to the police immediately.
