A 35-year-old Arab man was apprehended and prosecuted by Dubai courts on forgery charges, after he forged a leasing contract in Dubai.
The incident dates back to last November, when an employee of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs was approached by the defendant, who wanted a visa to be issued for his son.
The defendant submitted the required documents for visa issuance and among them was the forged contract.
After verifying the contract’s details with the municipality, the employee discovered that it was unregistered, and that the stamp on it looked different from the rest of the submitted documents.
When the employee asked the defendant about the validity of his documents, he looked nervous.
Then when he was asked about his residence, he did not give a clear answer.
This is when he finally admitted to forging the contract with the help of another accomplice.
He was detained by police then referred to the court.
The victim testified that he was hunting for jobs for his younger brother and had met the defendant at one of Dubai’s companies. The defendant manipulated the victim into thinking he can issue a work visa for his brother for Dhs6,500.
After auditing the documents submitted by the defendant, employees found out that the contract’s stamps attributed to Sharjah Municipality and SEWA were forged.
The Dubai Public Prosecution referred a 43-year-old Arab employee to the criminal court for committing five different crimes, including forgery, embezzlement, and impersonating a doctor.
