Sharjah Police handover the watch to woman's husband.
Gulf Today, Staff Reporter
The security teams at the Sharjah Ports and Airports Department were able to return a precious wristwatch that an Emirati woman lost eight months ago at a security checkpoint at Sharjah International Airport.
She reportedly lost it while completing her outbound procedures.
This reflects keenness of the Sharjah Police to maintain rights of public and to make them, in line with the commitment to fulfil their social responsibility.
Lt. Col. Matar Al Ketbi, Head of the Airport Police Department, stated that the department had received a report from an Emirati man last February, stating that his wife had lost a valuable wristwatch at a security checkpoint.
The police dealt with the report immediately.
The airport’s operation rooms, investigation teams, and criminal investigation teams joined forces to track the movement of passengers on the day the watch was lost, Al Ketbi added.
Those efforts resulted in the identification of an Asian man, who was on board of the same flight.
He was seen in the surveillance footage picking up the watch and hiding it in between his belongings. Accordingly, he was circulated in the criminal system, and he was arrested 8 months after the theft, upon his return through one of the country's airports.
After confronting him with his seizure of the watch, he confessed to the theft, and thus legal measures were taken against him.
He admitted that he kept it in his residence in another Gulf country.
Accordingly, officials at the airport police department allowed him to communicate with his family members there to send the watch.
For his part, the Emirati man who filed the report thanked the Sharjah Police for the distinguished efforts made by its personnel, stressing their effective role in achieving security and safety for all.
A quick thinking school bus driver notified the police about the fire.
This came after 21 people had filed complaints with the police station indicating that one person working for a tourist company in Al Dhaid City had deluded them that he had flight offers at the lowest and cheapest prices, but he cheated them and swindled their money.
Commander in Chief of Sharjah Police honoured Sergeant Ahmed Hassan Al Hammadi for helping one of the vehicle drivers whose vehicle suddenly broke down on Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Road.
The Sharjah Police stated that non-compliance with wearing masks, and gatherings top the list of reports received through the reporting platforms that have been made available to the public, stressing the need to adhere to precautionary measures, and to report violations and abuses through its channels designated for individuals so that deterrent legal measures are taken against violators.
Qatar's Interior Ministry described the building as a four-story structure in Doha's Bin Durham neighborhood. It said rescuers found seven survivors, while the one person killed had been inside the building at the time of the collapse.
A large number of diplomatic corps, officials of the UAE, prominent business individuals and Pakistani community residing in the UAE participated in the event.
The pardon gives the released prisoners an opportunity to get a fresh start in life and reintegrate into the community, he added.
