The Dubai Public Prosecution referred an Arab man and an Asian runaway accomplice to criminal court, for stealing Dhs642,000 from a businessman in Dubai.
Details of the incident indicate that the two defendants had forged official Dubai court documents to trick the victim into believing that they could minimise his violation fees and close all cases open against him.
The Arab defendant claimed to be a relative of a security officer who could help in minimising the victim’s bank fines.
Accordingly, the victim trusted both of them with a huge amount of money in order to finish his late debts, and received receipts from the two defendants, which later were found to be fake.
The victim was later arrested for being late in payments, and police then found out about the forged receipts and the robbery.
