A 32-year-old Asian investor was booked and prosecuted along with another employee, for forging a COVID-19 test result in order to travel outside the UAE. The incident dates back to last December, when an employee of a travel agency received the defendant’s COVID-19 test results and discovered that it was outdated.
The employee asked the defendant to show the text message he received with the PCR result, but he refused and seemed to be nervous about it.
The employee then asked him to undergo another PCR test in order to catch the booked flight, so the defendant returned with the forged paper after half an hour.
This is when the employee found out about the forged PCR and reported the incident to police.
Police teams placed the defendant and his accomplice under arrest and they were prosecuted on forgery charges to receive maximum legal punishment.
