The Supreme Federal Court upheld the appeal of two people to a verdict obligating them to pay Dhs2,135,000 to a person they had given dud cheques to, for the price of mobile phones they bought from him.
Details of the case indicate that the plaintiff filed a commercial lawsuit, in which he demanded the suspects to pay him, in solidarity, Dhs2,135,000, with interest of 12% annually, explaining that the second suspect gave him cheques for the value of mobile phones but they proved to be dud.
The Court of First Instance ruled to assign an expert and obligated the suspects, in solidarity, to pay Dhs2,135,000 with an interest of 5% annually, but the suspects appealed. The case was returned to the expert.
The Federal Appellate Court rejected the appeal, and the suspects appealed before the Cassation Court.
The defendants affirmed they had paid the value of the mobile phones they purchased from the plaintiff, proved with cheques and transfers and disbursement of cheque amounts. They submitted documents with fixed numbers and value, receipt and deposits.
