According to court records, three men working in an Abu Dhabi-based real estate company had filed a case in the Court of First Instance against the foreman, demanding compensation.

The petitioners, who are brothers, accused the foreman of harassing them and using abusive language against one of them in public.

The court, which limited the suit to only the offended brother, ordered the foreman to either pay compensation of Dh20,000 or be deported.

The accused moved the Court of Appeal saying that he could not pay compensation.

Hence, the court ordered him to be deported.

The defendant then moved the Federal Supreme Court, where the prosecution witnesses affirmed that the foreman was in the habit of using vulgar language against all workers, adding that the company had warned him many times, and finally terminated his service.
