Capital punishment is a legal penalty in the United Arab Emirates, although it is rarely carried out. Under Emirati law, multiple crimes carry the death penalty, and the sole method of execution is firing squad. Current law allows the death penalty for treason, murder, rape, aggravated robbery, kidnapping, terrorism, sodomy and drug trafficking, although death sentences are frequently commuted to life sentences. Overseas nationals and UAE nationals have both been executed for crimes.
