The Dubai Criminal Court sentenced a gang of three Asians, one of whom is a fugitive, to one year in jail each, after they were convicted of forging official electronic documents, breach of trust, seizing a vehicle and exporting it to an Arab country with the forged documents.
Court also fined the main suspect Dhs220,000 and the other two Dhs150,000. All of them will be deported after serving the term.
Details of the case date back to January this year, when an Arab salesman working for a used vehicle showroom submitted a report stating that the first suspect had seized a vehicle from the showroom, adding that he was a permanent customer of the showroom and that during a visit to it, he requested a vehicle key to test drive it because he wanted to buy it.
The salesman pointed out that the suspect did not return the vehicle, so he called him more than once, but he said he wanted to buy the vehicle and add some accessories. After four hours, he did not answer the phone.
Four days later, the salesman filed a report with the police that formed a team who discovered the vehicle had been transferred to another emirate and its papers and engine base numbers were forged with the help of the second and third suspects, and then transported to an Arab country.
A salesman who forged paperwork in a bid to smuggle cigarette packets disguised as ink cartridges attracted a Dhs2.5m fine against his boss, a jury heard on Monday.
Two men, an Arab and an Asian, on Tuesday stood before the Criminal Court in Dubai over defrauding Dhs152,000 from a British manager as a part of annual rent of a villa.
He reportedly concealed his marriage and used the health insurance card and identification documents of his ex-wife to admit the second wife to hospital for birth and got the birth data for his daughters.
The total land area of mangrove forests in the UAE — those emerald lush along the beaches and waterways that offer surprises because of hanging, crawling and flapping animals that may also give visitors a peek-a-boo — is set to expand with the “birth” of another area bearing these salt-tolerant shrubs at the Abu Dhabi-Dubai border.
With its ample options for families during the Holy Month of Ramadan, the Global Village in Dubai has became an ultimate choice to visit.
The Dubai Criminal Court imprisoned an Asian cook for a year, to be followed by deportation and fined Dhs86,000 on charges of using a no-objection certificate and another person’s ID card for fabricating a bus key owned by a contracting company to steal it and sell it conniving with a compatriot.
