The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance obligated a person to pay another Dhs10,000 in compensation for moral damages caused to him after he insulted him in front of his colleagues and threatened him with imprisonment.
The court rejected obligating the victim to pay compensation, noting that the case papers did not include any evidence of material damage.
Details of the case date back to an earlier time when the plaintiff filed a lawsuit demanding the defendant to pay him Dhs60,000 in compensation for the moral and material damages he suffered, indicating that the suspect insulted him in front of his colleagues and threatened him with imprisonment.
The court affirmed that it had upheld the verdict of the appellate court that convicted the suspect, so the verdict became final.
