Two Asian drivers, aged 29 and 24, were arrested and prosecuted by Dubai courts for embezzling Dhs21,000 by using the taxi for personal gain.
The incident was revealed after an inspector of the Roads and Transport Authority received a traffic violation that indicates that the vehicle was driven by someone else other than its driver.
Investigations pointed out that the taxi driver had given the vehicle to his accomplice, who drove recklessly under the influence of alcohol.
When the accomplice was asked to show his ID, he showed a false ID with a different picture.
Apparently, the accomplice was a former taxi driver at the Authority, and had been illegally sharing the taxi with its driver for two months to earn extra money without using the fare meter.
They had both embezzled Dhs21,000 through misusing the vehicle.
