The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance obligated a man to pay Dhs87,000 to his divorcee after he had withdrawn the amount from their daughter’s bank account.
While married, the defendant and his divorcee agreed to deposit each a monthly amount in the said account to secure the future of their daughter.
The court also obligated the defendant to pay the charges, expenses and lawyer’s fees.
The case dated back to a lawsuit filed by a woman in which she demanded that the defendant, her ex-husband, be obligated to pay Dhs87,000 plus the charges and expenses.
The plaintiff said she and her then husband agreed to open an account in their daughter’s name and to deposit each a sum of money on a monthly basis.
She added that she deposited monthly sums of money which totaled the amount subject of the lawsuit.
After being divorced, the plaintiff discovered that all the amount had been withdrawn from the account and consequently she filed the lawsuit and attached money transfer statements.
The court explained that the defendant did not contest the claimed amount and ruled that the defendant pay Dhs87,000 to the plaintiff plus the charges and expenses including lawyer’s fees.
The husband also demanded his ex-wife to pay him Dhs120,000, which he had spent on renovation of their house.
The Abu Dhabi Police arrested a mother in the emirate of Abu Dhabi for torturing her daughter over a family dispute between her and her divorced husband.
The Abu Dhabi Appellate Court rejected a lawsuit by a man against his ex-wife, demanding that she had to pay him a compensation of Dhs100,000 for falsely reporting that he had assaulted her and endangered her life.
There were no immediate reports of casualties from the strikes and no claim of responsibility, two police officers said. A number of Shi'ite Muslim militant groups have offices and supporters in eastern Baghdad.
Both had pleaded not guilty to charges of violating the official secrets act, which carries a maximum sentence of 14 years. "Three years each, no hard labour," said the source, who declined to be identified due to the sensitivity of the issue.
