SHARJAH:  A GCC woman filed a complaint against her brother-in -law after receiving text messages on her phone from the traffic department alerting her that she had accumulated traffic fines amounting to Dhs95,000 because the suspect registered the car in her name without her knowledge.

The complainant told the Sharjah Criminal Court she attempted to settle the issue down with the suspect before going to court and asked him to close the traffic file several times, but he temporised it several time, pushing her to file a complaint against him.

The suspect denied the complainant’s statements before the court and provided a proof that she was the one who registered the car in the traffic department and that he was only a middleman in the process of buying and selling the vehicle.

The court adjourned the case to April 8 to summon witnesses.

In another case,  the Dubai Public Prosecution referred 8 suspects of different nationalities to the Misdemeanours Court on charges of money laundering  after they transferred Dhs200,000 between their bank accounts and then fraudulently obtained the money from a bank in Sharjah.

Counsellor Ismail Madani, Attorney-General, Head of the public funds prosecution said the prosecution’s investigations revealed that seven persons of different nationalities and a private company were using and benefiting from unknown funds.

They reportedly deposited and transferred Dhs199,780 in the account of the charged company in a commercial bank, then to the second suspect’s account in the same bank. They later forged a document which they presented to a bank in Sharjah under the name of a private hospital to hide the source of illegal money.

In another case, Ayat Al Deeb reported that The Supreme Federal Court has upheld the verdict against two drug traffickers sentencing them to life jail and fines of Dhs50,000 each.

Details of the case date back to earlier when prosecution charged the defendants with possession of methamphetamine and abusing methamphetamine and amphetamine.
