In the second case, the victim is a 32-year-old Asian manager who called the police when the suspect came to meet him at his workplace, and asked him for his financial dues because he had already been sacked.

The suspect refused the amount the manager offered him, and flew into rage. He shouted and threatened to kill everyone and kill himself. Then, he opened his bag and took out a bottle, claiming that it contained  petroleum material. He reportedly threatened to burn everyone and burn himself, but the attendees took control of him and then called the police.

Recently, the Dubai Public Prosecution referred two female visitors to the Misdemeanors Court on charges of begging people for money. The two women were arrested and the amounts in their possession, seized. The court sentenced them to one month in jail to be followed by deportation and ordered the seized money to be confiscated.

Khalid Hassan Al Mutawa, assistant chief prosecutor, who initiated investigation ainto the case, said the two women had been arrested in co-operation with the anti-begging authorities and taken to the police station before being referred to the public prosecution for interrogation.

He explained that the defendants confessed during the public prosecution interrogations that they were selling some foodstuffs in a shopping area but went later to a nearby mosque to ask passersby and worshippers for money, which they did collect some.

Based on this, the two defendants were referred to the Misdemeanor Court on charges of begging, which is punished under the federal law no. 9 for 2018 on anti-begging, he said.

Al Mutawa called on the members of the society to contribute to fighting and curbing this phenomenon by not responding to beggars and ignoring begging attempts. He also called on them to notify the concerned accordingly so that necessary legal action is taken. Begging is a dangerous negative phenomenon that jeopardizes the security and integrity of the society, he said, noting that the UAE charities extend a helping hand to every needy person and their doors are always open to everybody.
