In another case, two public employees took advantage of their job when they stole Dhs3,380 from a bananas seller whom they took to a deserted area on the pretext of interrogation.
The victim testified before the Dubai Public Prosecution that on the day of the incident while he was selling bananas in Jebel Ali, a security patrol stopped, and one of its members got-off and walked to him. He asked him about the price of bananas, then seized him and drove away to a sandy area, however they did not ask for his ID card. They then took him out of the patrol’s vehicle, put his hands in the handcuffs and took his wallet. They checked his identification papers and informed him that his visa is expired, thus he had to pay fines of about Dhs20,000. The seller argued that his visa is still valid and that he is on his employer’s sponsorship. Following some arguments, they set him free provided that he did not to inform anyone about what had just happened.
After they left, the seller checked his wallet and discovered the disappearance of Dhs3,380. He headed to the police station and reported the incident.
