Dubai Criminal Court sentenced an Arab Engineer to 1 year imprisonment followed by deportation for forging a leasing contract and using an ID under someone else’s name.
The incident took place in January last year when the victim of used ID was surprised to find out there was a rental case filed against him at the time he was renewing his family’s visas.
When he inquired about it, he learnt that there was a leasing contract under his name.
The victim denied the incident and claimed that his friend, the defendant, was the one who rented the apartment using his ID and other credentials, and that the defendant had promised to settle the issue without causing any trouble to the victim.
The victim stated that the defendant was reluctant for two months to solve the issue, until he decided to file a police report against him.
The defendant was charged with forgery and sentenced to one year of jail-time.
