The Abu Dhabi Court of Cassation upheld a ruling rejecting a lawsuit filed by the brother of a woman after her death, in which he demanded that her husband and his brother be obligated to pay him compensation of Dhs200,000 and to prove the invalidity of power of attorney granted by the deceased to her husband and brother.

The deceased’s brother filed a lawsuit after his sister’s death, demanding the annulment of all power of attorneys granted to her husband during her illness.

The deceased’s husband said his wife acknowledged in her will that he owned two apartments and that all what she did was according to her will, which was not affected by her illness.

The Court of First Instance rejected the case, and the brother appealed the verdict, but the court rejected the appeal, noting that the suspects obtained power of attorneys which enabled them to sell and buy, taking advantage of the deceased’s bad health condition, and that everything her husband and brother did was fraud and illegal.

The Court of Cassation also rejected the appeal and the case, pointing out that the power of attorneys were cancelled by the force of law following the death of the deceased and that no damage was proved to the court, so he does not deserve compensation.
