A 37-year-old Asian adviser was imprisoned and prosecuted by Dubai courts for forging a rental contract to get visa issued for his son.
Official records indicate that the incident took place last March, after the defendant’s crime was discovered by employees of an immigration services office.
After auditing the documents submitted by defendant, employees found out that contract’s stamps attributed to Sharjah Municipality and SEWA were forged.
They informed authorities and defendant was arrested.
"The defendant submitted official documents, including the forged tenancy contract to get a visa issued for his son," an employee of the immigration services office testified.
"After the forgery was discovered, the defendant admitted to getting the help of another accomplice to forge the documents in exchange for Dhs700.”
